my local used to do me at cost... because they knew I could go trade.... i used to sell fish to wholesalers :mrgreen: ...( and their buyer/rep collected)

but for most , well end of the day a shop has overheads & must make a profit to pay bills & wages, holidays etc..

You'll be lucky lol.
You could look into importing direct from S E Asia or somewhere like that. I have heard of people doing that before. Although you would need to get quite a lot of fish to make it worth your while. The prices are amazing though, literally pennies for some of the bread and butter fish.

importing works when you are looking at 10-12+ boxes, ( under 100kg total weight airfreight is truly horrendous) otherwise the agent, shipping and handling fees make it a no go

Wholesale prices are not really to discriminate between shops and public buyers, but rather to sell in large bulk, for example the site you quote is a minimum buy of £75, say you wanted neons at 25p each you'd need to sign up to 300 fish, which you'd then have to do something with!
I buy wholesale regularly for an ebay business (products, not live animals) and only occasionally have I been asked for a business name at which point I just give my ebay shop name.

need a license to run a pet shop... silly...

here in the states you merely need a tax I.D. number... just go downtown and get a business license for $50 bucks and viola!... you're in business with a tax exempt number and anyone will sell to you wholesale...


i bet you need a license to run a bait shop there...:lol2:
