I've talked to a guy in brandon before that sells live roti's for like $12.

Theyre supposed to be easy to raise if you put the time into it. You just have to keep starting new batches so you can keep your starter going. and then buy the special fertilizer. and keep lights on 24/7 and bubblers lol

so yeah i mean its simple and doesn't take a lot of thought, you just have to keep up with it

i would never do it myself because it just takes too much of your time to take care of them and it also costs a lot of money yeah you miight be saving 5 dollars but in the end id rather buy them and have the peace of mind on not getting them then having to take care of them all the time
