I've seen some Caridina shrimp sell for a lot! Again, you have to start with good quality stock.

If you're willing to ship, or even just to see how much things are selling for, check out AquaBid, or even eBay. Do you belong to any local fish clubs?

Here are a few sites that can give you an idea about what's available and online selling costs:

The Shrimp Farm

Shrimp USA

Elite Inverts

Thanks! I've been wanting to get some blue tiger shrimp for a while, so that might be perfect.

I used to pay for my hobby by selling rcs to my lfs. They did not have good access to them, and gave me store credit so I could buy food and such. I definitely agree that you should check in with the lfs in your area and see what sort of policies they have about buying in fish, and what sort of stuff they need. Shrimp are usually the way to go if you have limited space!

I'm in a very similar situation space. You should ask PoppaRyno, he's the one with the $35000 fish room and he still makes some money off fish. I would say get a good relation with your LFS. The guy at mine kinda knows me now and has offered reduced prices for my age which I have turned down. Also if you continue loving fish and have a good LFS relation for pretty much your whole life than you can also get reduced prices in the future. Those are my tips but I'm only 13, so you might want to listen to the wiser adults.
