A few weeks ago I was doing a little spring cleaning in the garage and came across a ten gallon fish tank one of my kids had used for a school or Scouting project. I did what comes natural to me these days when something is no longer needed and put it up for sale on Craigslist.
A guy responded and when he showed up to get the tank I asked him if he collected fish. He said he bought exotic fish cheap when they were young, raised them to adulthood or full size and then sold them for a hefty profit. He gave me an example, of which I can’t remember the amount, but it was large enough I remember wondering at the time who would pay that much for a fish.
The conversation only lasted a few minutes but he also mentioned something about “Blue Jack Dempsey’s” and a site he used called Aqua Bid.
I don’t think this is a money making idea I am going to try (I prefer to catch and eat fish) but I wanted to pass it on to you in case you want to do a little research and give it a go. As the fish dealer was leaving he made the final comment, “It’s not bad money for just throwing in some fish food once in a while.”
