i been running these tanks
and u know shrimp breed crazy
i cant afford food for all of them
i have to sell them but i want to sell them all in one day (maybe a cheap and fast way)
i dont like online and i dont like each of person come to my house for pickup

so every 3 months, i happened to pack 30bags of shrimp/ endlers and crayfish selling them on street

i can open a vendor in big flea market or i sell them at parking lot of petstores

is it illegal or should i be careful of something ......?
advice needed...

however on parking of petstore, i want $10
its kinda fun selling them person to person lol

Have you tried contacting the pet stores if you can sell to them for store credit or for profit?

If you were able to gain store credit, then you can buy supplies for even more shrimps there!

It is weird but I would probably buy them.

Is this a joke? o_o

i asked at aquarium center in NJ , hiddenreef , fishfactory , nemos... and more lfs...
they can't give me store credit
i brought some stores samples a lots of clarkiis they selling $10~20 in store
i show them my fish room , my 200~300 yellow , rcs
offered 3 shrimp for $1 store credit, or $2-3 on cpo or crayfish
they still cant give me store credit
i understood , so im on street lol
this is not joke

If you're willing to ship, I'd take some as well! LEarn to ship!

Same here, There's is more of a profit margin if your willing to ship.

Ill make you a deal, ill buy the food for your all your shrimp, I will also purchased some kordon bags and shipping supplies for you, you can then send me some of your surplus shrimp. Pm me if you are interested

If the IRS ever catches wind of your profits from it you might be in doodoo. Your operation is larger than a simple hobbiest

Yeah, I will trade you a bag of spinach for a bag of shrimp! :D

If you don't like online or pick up then meet the person in some public parking lot.

I'd definitely be interested in what you would sell for 3 for $1 credit.

I would avoid soliciting on private property unless you meeting up with someone and doing a quick transaction otherwise hanging out and if the property owners complain to the police could net you a fine if you are caught repeatedly.

You would make a killing on this forum if you were willing to ship.

What are those green shrimp you have with the cherries?

aznrice247 11-13-2012 03:09 AM

shipping shrimps aint too bad, use a kordon breather bag, shredded paper and a small flat rate box. Shippings about 10 bucks but thats on the buyer. 3 shrimps for 1 dollar to the LFS?!?!?!?! thats a rip off! They are gonna charge customers 3 or 4 dollars per shrimp.

try looking for a local club, aquabid works as well, also craigslist works. i don't get why the fishstores wont buy from you. it makes no sense. but anyways, i was wondering how exactly you filtered all these tanks. is there a giant wet dry filter somewhere. or like a huge giant canister filter. i see one canister in a pic. but that can't be it.

If you look real close to the pics of the room tanks there are some what appears to be sponge filters in the back corners. Hard to tell if that's all.
