Yupp....this is true Convicts ..and generally cichlids aren't at all common in egypt :roll: I can very very easily sell them and for a BIG prophit here :drooling: But anyway im not getting convicts in hope of selling their babies for money , I just like them as a fish i've never kept before but also if I can sell the babies it would be helpful to atleast cover up my expenses buying them quality food and the tons of BBS eggs I already buy which are really expensive here :? So my convicts breeding is not at all a problem ,I have the time, space and homes for their fry if I do get some or many :fish:tannable75 said:Sounds like there arent any in Egypt. He could sell them there :roll:
LOL no ...you can easily get an aquarium and some common fish like goldfish, zebra danios, some barbs....etc but i'd readily accept to open one...maybe later when I gain some more knowledge on various types of fish... , I know 6 LFSs in my area so thats quite alot but 3 of them totally suck :x Their fish are all the "feeder type" even the guppies they sell are feeder guppies (but mine are fancy) and are kept in icky conditions that I never buy anything from there except tanks cause they look so diseased! I once got 2 guppies from them and I was still new to the hobby a few years ago so I didnt quarantine my new fish and all the tank bloomed with itchy icky fin rot And i lost some of my best fancies to the horrible disease And since then I decided never to get anything from there....anyway these fish store owners are coarse people who have only received minimum kind of education that just want money...so u can imagine how horrible their fishs' quality would be!tannable75 said:Are aquariums in general not common or just cichids?
Sounds like you need to open an LFS.
It sure is I,personally am lucky that I can find everything I need for my fish here and easily. It makes the hobby more interesting to have fun things available to experiment with ....like trying different foods for your fish and culturing ur own. I really enjoyed raising brine shrimp to adulthood and I was able to sex them...u can even recognize which are males and which are females when they are full adults if u keep them alive for a month......that was a pretty interesting thing I did once but it ended in a dramastic ending ....the nany dumped the whole jar in the toilet cause she thought it was just smelly water :roll: LOLVT4Me said:Don't apologize. It's interesting to hear about fishkeeping in other countries!
