Wow, this amazes me!

I'm just wondering, you don't even have to answer, haha, if you make much of a profit at all with that many fish? I'm sure that making a profit is not your intention, but I'm just curious :)

ChelseaK, I can't believe I'm only 14...
I come from a long line of oriental fish breeders, and as expected, I have grown to carry a strong passion for fishkeeping. I am currently breeding bettas, discus, and koi; I might start fancy guppies, but linebreeding has made the species weak in terms of physical manifestations.
I literally supply this one store's ENTIRE betta supply, so yeah, I do get monthly "pay" for doing this... As through international shipping, Amazon, eBay, and Aquabid, that's where the main of my profit come from, which is how I'm able to sustain a comfortable living space for 1,000 males and 10 20+ gal soroities (not to mention a 150 and 215 gal for my discus and two 500 gal ponds for my koi... However, like all, I can't believe I started out with 1 betta. ONE I SAY. The purpose for me for breeding though is to strenghten and maintain weak strains, such as the melano (which is currently my main "mission") and to develop and improve bloodlines, not to make a profit out of the hobby.

Update on the GOLD GIANT HMPK-
They are currently embracing, eggs being expelled. In a bit I think that it will finish and I am gonna isolate the female in nice warm water with M.blue and aloe vera (my softwater fish do not respond to salt treatment very well, maybe theyre being pampered too much, lol), not too much damage was being inflicted on this female, just a few scales missing and a relativly small fin tear... okay so male fiercly guarding the nest, adding lots more bubbles... Got my cultures ready, plus my giant fry respond well to newly hatched brine shrimp as a first food. WHOOPPPPPPPP!!!!!! X THROWS ME HANDS IN THE AIRRRR X

expecting the last 2 pairs to begin expelling midday tomorrow...

I way older than you, and I don't know how you do it! I plan on two spawns at a time, and I have my daughter to help. Of course I work full time too.
