Using Crappie minnows as an example.

One gallon
(or 8 pounds) of crappie minnows contains 120 dozen/1440 minnows. (A very conservative estimate.)

The average cost of a gallon of crappie minnows is $25.00.

Crappie minnows are usually sold by the scoop, which holds approximately 24 minnows. This scoop of minnows usually sells for $3.00 per scoop.

At 24 minnows per scoop there will be 60 scoops per gallon.


60 X $3.00 =$180.00
Cost per gallon$25.00

That's 600% profit!

Selling 3 gallons per week:
3 gallons X $155.00 = $465.00 profit
In 4 weeks, profit generated would total $1860.00

Food for thought:

At 60 scoops per gallon at 3 gallons per week equal 180 customers. In 4 weeks this will add up to 720 customers.

These customers will look around and will surely find other items to purchase.

Our tanks are very quick, simple and easy to clean. Just wipe the inside of the tanks with the minnows still in the tank. Use a cloth or a sponge that has not been treated with any cleaners, soaps or detergents, wipe and rinse the cloth or sponge in the same water. The filter system will pick up the debris. Cleaning will probably take less than five minutes per tank and can be done anytime.
