What morphs are you interested in?

Plasma's are mint, as are Snopals/Opals IMO :)

Don't know the genetics on Snopals/Opals but LavenderBloodred is Plasma.

Anything striped is increasing in popularity, you can quadruple the price of a basic morph such as butter by adding stripe to it... don't even know how much lavender or opal stripes are going for this year but :mf_dribble: :mf_dribble:

Your basic staples are

Normals, Amels, Anerys, Snows, Hypo, Ghost, Caramel

Then you've got your middling stuff

Butter, Amber, Bloodred, Lavender, Blizzard (Anery B Amel)

Then your slightly rarer stuff

Opal (Amel Lavender) Snopal (Amel Anery Lavender), Fire (Amel Bloodred), Granite (Anery Bloodred), Hypo Lavender, Hypo Bloodred, Pewter (Anery B Bloodred)

Then there's even more...

Avalanche (Anery Amel Bloodred), Sulfur (Amel Caramel Bloodred), Plasma (Lavender Bloodred), Whiteout (Anery B Amel Bloodred)

Then we've also got the newer genes on the market, some co-dom, some unexplored.. we've got Cinders, Ultra and all the genes that came forth (Ultramel, Golddust, etc), Lava/Ice

And I'm not covering them all...

The rarer it is, if you can add motley you can make a killing, if you can add stripe - well to some of the rarer things this has never been done,or very rarely done in the states, certainly opportunity's for "first in the UK" on the higher range with stripes.

Obviously the higher up the list you go the more you're paying out, with some corns going over $1000 for babies in the states.

It's entirely your choice as to which cultivars appeal to you &, also, what is 'currently' appealing to the market when you breed your adults!

My best advice is to obtain good quality stock to begin any Breeding Programme.

Why £500?

If people are happy selling for £275 they are entitled to, I didn't realise there were so many high priced worms, I'm gonna do an import I think, plasma's for £150-£200 should be easy enough to sell :whistling2:

becuase at the time they were the same price in the states. thats how it works, 300 in the states works out at 500-600 here.
if people want to sell at that price i guess there is nothing anyone can do really.

Was that at Barking Nige? I remember there was a table upstairs that had some very high end corns on the far right at Barking... and he seemed to be selling them at a good half the going price, but still no one seemed to be buying. I was tempted, but I have to admit, being cheaper than I expected I actually thought "what's wrong with them then", and left it.

How does 300 in the states work out as 5-600 here?

$300 there - about £150-£160 cost for the snake, £300 over there is £300 over here cost for the snake.
