Yes, the main question is....What are some cichlids, i could trade for supplies, or sell for a small fee/ give away that people will actually wan't.
I don't wan't to get over run with cichlids that no one wants.
So basically what's the "best selling" cichlids in your guys opinion? Or atleast the ones you've never had a problem giving away, selling cheaply, getting supplies back for them!

Excellent quality yellow labs (hard to find). Demasoni (troublesome to raise). Color sells!

+1 for "color sells!"
The lfs I sell/trade for supplies with is always asking for labs and dems, so anything that has
monomorphic and early color will sell best.

I say do research of your local area, watch craigslist, got to clubs, etc. Turns out there's a Tropheus breeder 3 miles from my house.

Demasoni, Albino Ruby Reds, Yellow Labs, Lamp. leleupi, and OB Peacocks. These are all fish that are easy to breed, grow faily quickly, have good color at a young size, and are not insanely produced by farms.

All that being said you should only expect a wholesale value of 1/4-1/3 of what you see them selling for at your lfs.
