They give me 50% of what they sell them for and that's good enough for me. I have a spawn of Bosemani Rainbows that I can't wait to get large enough to take them. They'll be delighted. They know how much safer it is to buy from a local breeder than to have to depend on Asian imports through a wholesaler.
    You are fortunate to have an excellent set up that need not change. When Kenny was a small boy just getting started in the Discus selling business he had those same fears as you but thankfully he over came those fears and went on to become one of the greatest sellers of Discus known to man, and woman, kind. Honestly, your method of selling or giving to the LFS inspired me to approach a LFS near me. I asked them if they would be interested in taking my spare Discus. They were delighted. Now I only need to get a handful of those spare Discus.

    I sell mine my lesser quality Discus and ones that are very good but won't work in my breeding program, but they only want them when they are medium (3"). Nobody buys them when they're small and they are too hard to keep unlil they get a little size on them.

    Discusluv, please forgive me for taking your thread and turning it into stuff about me. I didn't do it on purpose.

    The males will have longer anal fins that reach into their tail while the females will end at the beginning of the tail .

    No not tail fin the anal fin [under fish before tail ] is the best way to judge these fish IMO ..

    I typed tail but meant anal fin. Sometimes words dont cooperate with the brain.
