Yes but doesn’t flake go off?
If I had that much I’d be worried the bag would go off before the fish are anywhere near finishing it?
Unless you have like 30 fish tanks to feed per day?
Well, to be honest... I've got over 80 tanks running indoors. This is just one bag. This bag doesn't have the time to go off.
Emeraldking does have rather a lot of tanks......
Well yes, the number of tanks overhere does exceed the average number of an average aquarist. And it feels as if there aren't enough tanks already... ☺️
I've already emptied my outdoor tubs. Those fish have moved indoors. And a part of those outdoors kept livebearers have also found new homes at other places. These past two weeks, fish have been shipped to Italy, France and Latvia. And others were shipped domestically. I don't have any problems to get rid of my fish.
maybe you could package up smaller quantities and sell them at a nice profit online on ebay or somewhere else...
Oh, I could. But I won't. I'm also an exhibitor at vivaristic events for years. And I've sold food as well but there were already so many people who were doing that, that I've decided to skip that. Breeders and keepers of rare livebearers or higher segment livebearers (show quality), national and international are more interested in the fish themselves than side products. I've build up a decent name within the serious aquarium world throughout the years. And that's something I'd like to keep it that way. And it's very important to be transparant to the customer within this field (actually, in every kind of field). And don't promise them things that you can not deliver. I'm not focusing on money, but on quality and trust. That I let people pay for it, is because I also have my own costs (food, electricity, water and shipping costs). And when I'm doing an event, I have to make costs for my stand and the car doesn't drive for free.
Throughout the years, fish of mine have moved to several parts of the world. But despite of what I've just mentioned, my first focus is not trade. Firstly, I'm a passionate aquarist at all times before any kind of trade. And in general, my fish go to serious keepers and breeders. And I am very fortunate to have no shortage of enthusiasm from appreciators of such livebearers.
