I have created a special banner for local fish breeders

Following the program and discussion there will be an auction of fish, plants, and dry goods from local hobbyists and shops, many rare and hard-to-find. Doors open 7:30 PM and feature a door prize, raffles, sales table, Breeder & Grower Award Programs, and a Plant, Fish, and Sponsor of the Month. Meet and greet hobbyists from around the region! Quality Inn Meadowlands, 10 Polito Avenue, Lyndhurst, NJ (just off the Rt.17 / Rt.3 Junction, not far from the Lincoln Tunnel and NJ Turnpike. NYC Express Bus stop across street). All are welcome!

These are planted tank friendly fish that we breed ourselves or buy from other local fish breeders.

As for turning breeding into a commercial venture, remember the laws ofsupply and demand. For most common community fish, pet stores can orderwhatever they want whenever they want it from importers, fish farms, andwholesalers. The hobbyist, on the other hand, has occasional batches offish that the store may not need or want at that time. The only thing onyour side when you walk into a store with a batch of unrequested fish isthat locally bred fish are often healthier and less stressed that fishthat have been shipped and must be acclimated to local water conditions.

Leo Ray, president and owner of Fish Breeders of Idaho, agreed that customers should ask for local fish in their grocery store. Given its current progressive business climate, virtually any Chinese occupation harbors a blueprint for a burgeoning industry.

Online: It’s becoming quite common for hobbyists to shop online rather than in-person at their local pet shop or through a local breeder when looking for that perfect addition to their aquarium. There is wider selection of fish, the variety of different colors and species.

The Sacramento Aquarium Society (SAS) is a local fish club that meets at 7:00 pm on the first Saturday of each month. We are a non-profit organization with an objective to encourage and further the interest of the care and breeding of tropical fish and to promote the exchange of information between amateur aquarists. Meetings typically include a guest speaker, bowl show, raffle, attendance prize, and an auction which includes fish, aquatic plants, and aquarium supplies. Many of the auction items go for less than wholesale prices.Another way to make money breeding fish is to focus on the oddballs: The ones that can’t be found in local pet stores, or the ones people just simply don’t think of selling. Once again, this is highly dependent on your area, and you need to do a bit of research before you settle on what you want to breed.
