Yeah but think how good it'll feel raising your own from tiny and then selecting two and having them breed, as opposed to just buying two big ones from the LFS. It'll be an achievement - it'll feel good.
I got tiny babies from a shop about 4 months ago, they're getting big now. Its really nice to see them healthy and growing. Can't wait til I get babies - think its gonna be a while though

Good luck with your babies!
