when u walking into pet store at parking lot , somebody approach at u and asking
hey u want these for $10???
is it weird????







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...








when i open a vendor in flea market i have to pay $60
so i would sell these shrimps for $20
however on parking of petstore, i want $10
its kinda fun selling them person to person lol

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.

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.

if you like person to person but you dont want people coming by which i understand as i got a bad vibe off a buyer today and started getting worried as he was on his way but took forever claiming he was lost on a road that you just go straight down... SO that being said maybe if you let me know what you have i would be interested in meeting you some where in the middle as i am probably an hour away from you...

...well isn't that a huge let down. haha. i thought someone with those epic fish store tanks would at least have a huge ass filter for it. but you're right looks like just sponge filters unless hes running extra filtration on top of those.
