Any opiniouns appreciated.
If you've never bred fish before, you've picked a rather advanced fish to start with.
The best way to know if you have a market for them is to see if your potential buyers will buy them. If you are not equipped for shipping the fish, your local fish stores are your target customers. Unless they already have reliable sources for homegrown discus, I doubt that they wouldn't want them BUT you have to confirm this with them.
As for mixing with other cichlids for sale purposes, you shouldn't need to worry about that. Discus in their own right are good sellers when not overpriced. The need for other fish to entice a store to buy from you probably means you should be looking for another buyer.
Hope this helps...
