    I think for most of us, is the challenge of keeping CRS and breedinf them and see it grow that keep us going and making extra dollar out of it is a bonus. I have lost countless of blue notes due to careless during water change and some stupid things I did, I persist and hope that I can success in multiplying them.

    Haha its like restaurant owner vs hawker centre stall owner. Each has pros and cons

    most ppl keep shrimps as a hobby and seldom will they earn much profits from it.

    Keeping 2 tanks of shrimps. One tank with chiller for CRS and the other with basic setup for RCS.

    Only been able to earn enough from selling RCS to cover electric bills. Never enough to cover my setup cost of buying the soil, shrimps, chiller and cannister filter.... sighhh.....

    But recently doing not too bad from selling my anetome helenas but still haven't cover setup.... Spent too much on initial cost already....

    i'd expect the "kick" from breeding a good batch of shrimps is rated much higher then giving them or selling them

    But then, i wanna be your friend

    I will keep it as a hobby, rather than a profit making business

    Re: Poll: Are you making $$$ from shrimp rearing?

    It is healthy to sell shrimps to recover the cost or made slight profit. So that such hobby will eventually be less costly than it seems because the shrimps have rewarded its owner for keeping them happy in the tank. Win-Win situation for hobbyist and shrimps. People who sell shrimps are also keeping the price low & economical for newbies who wanted to start a shrimp tank but find LFS a little expensive.

    I am planning to sell a small bags of my snowball shrimplets and use the money to upgrade to slightly bigger tank (1.5 feet) so that the mother snowballs feels more comfortable in bigger tank to produce even more babies and I can also enjoy the deeper poison of having a bigger tank.

    In this kind of economy, can make money make lah. It is not illegal and nothing to be ashamed about

    Re: Poll: Are you making $$$ from shrimp rearing?

    Haha, you can call that a hobby if you off load your excess for free. But if you start to sell, buyer may complain on your stuffs if it is not up to his/her standard no doubt you are very confident that yours are quality stuffs. Standards of individual are difference. It is a hobby, why should we endup with unhappiness. For me, I prefer to give it for free unless I need to do door step delivery.
