The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS.

      So I’ve decided I want to start breeding fish for some profit so that I can make some money back from the hobby. I’m going to breed dwarf cichlids and I’m going to use a racking system all connected to one sump. In total the system without the sump is about 220 gallons. Would a 55 gallon sump be big enough if I’m just breeding maybe 3 pairs of dwarf cichlids and some guppies? Any suggestions on efficient pumps for sumps? Also does any body have any idea how much wattage I would need to heat the aquariums? Any suggestions on good reliable heaters?

      Sounds like enough water.

      I've also went through the "try to make money from the hobby phase" and honestly it's not worth it. You'll put in a lot of money for mediocre return and matkets often saturate quickly depending on what you're breeding.

      What species are you breeding and what's the target market?

      I mean I’d like to give it a try anyway. For right now I’d be breeding kribs.
