I have been stocking a male 125g tank with peacocks and haps for about a year and a half now, purchasing juvies and grown males and selling off females and any that do not get along well with the others. I know in the store I can usually expect to pay at a bare minimum $20 for a male peacock/hap but more than likely the cost is usually closer to $30-$50 for a decent sized (3.5-5") fully colored male. I usually try to sell off the extra males to local hobbysists and have done so for $5-10 each which I think is way more than fair. These are usually fish that I pay $5-8 dollars for with no color and take a chance on and grow to adulthood for six months to a year. The more expensive fish I am trying to get $20 for but it seems people balk at the price. Are my prices totally unreasonable? I would guess that most LFS do not offer much of a guarantee on livestock and what I am selling is usually in better shape than anything I have seen around my area so with my prices being considerably less, I do not see the advantage to paying more for the same thing at the LFS? I am not making money doing this and this was never the intention...just trying to recover some of my investment in my purchases.
