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.

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.
