I'm picking up 6 20 gallon long fish tanks this week for $5 a pop, and there is also a chance for some mature albino short fin and long fin BN so I might get a long fin trio going.

Your right Mooo, I am planning a breeding project. I already have a great start with my albinos (on my 4th spawn). I have gotten a Calico and a Common male and am hunting for breeder size females, I have an albino long fin female and am hoping to pick up a male for her this week. So I am starting to build my tank stands this weekend and am looking at having 12 tanks up and running by mid June ranging from 75 gallons to 10 gallons. People already want to by them so with the money i may make from the sales of the fish I am hoping to get enough money together to get a group of Super reds. My goal is to have a breeding trio of Commons, Calicos, Albino short and long fin, then someday a trio of Super Reds. As soon as I get organized I will take pictures of my progress, any advise or input would be helpful.

I hate you Laughing

that is such a great score! Sell a few bits of the wood and make your money back they ride on the profits of the breeding for free! biggest cost of breeding BN is the set up and thats cost you basically nothing.

Anyone want to cut me the same deal over here?
