How long is a it of string?

it depends on many things. the typical spawn is about 40-60 eggs. they take about 2 months to get to sellable size, depending on various things like tank size, filtration, tank mates etc

hi mate you can expect to get between £8 and £10 each for them at an inch thats what i get for mine but grow them on to 2 inchs and you could get £12 to £20 ive never grew them on to that size but i intend to grow a few on from my next batch till 6 months old a local pet shop near me sells them for £20 at an inch and 3 quarters so its all about demand and supply Evil or Very Mad Twisted Evil Laughing

There was a guy selling them on aquarist for £10 each for an inch long...
That was a couple of weeks ago I think. He isnt posting now so maybe he sold out...
