Convict Market?

Ok, sorry for bothering everyone with all these questions about convicts. I just want to learn as much as possible about them.

Anywho, this may sound like a stupid question but, I will be breeding my fish and was wondering if I will always have a market for them. I just don't want to end up with hundreds of baby fish. (I do but I don't have the room right now )


BTW: Expect to find me giving away free convicts on the classifieds! I'm serious!

Where I live you can't give them away. Other members of my local club use them as food

I kinda figured my LFS or some place like that would take them... I live very close to "That Pet Place" (biggest pet store in the world! look em up), and thats where im getting my fish from... I'm sure they would take them.

Because of the fact that they are such great parents, the market is full of them around here. Don't get me wrong I think they're are great fish. There's is just no money paid for them by me

Yeah I'm kind of hesitant to give them to Petco/Petsmart because of the way they take care of the animals there too... :/
