A FINANCE professional has revealed a sleazy hobby that could earn you around $500 a month with just two hours of work a week.
TikToker Humphrey Yang has given an inside look at a lucrative business that involves farming baby shrimp.
“You’ve never seen a side hustle involving shrimp farming and selling before,” the TikToker said in a viral video.
“You can start for around $250 and earn close to $125 a week within a few months.”
Yang chatted with Hugo, aka @shrimplabusa, who showed off his incredibly unique business.
The TikTok showed off a pretty sizable setup that included massive tanks full of baby shrimp.
“The tank setup will cost you $150 total, and then you’ll need six red pinto shrimp,” Yang said.
“These will cost you $20 each, and the shrimp food packet will cost you $10 and will last you about 90 days.”
Next, you need to manipulate your tank conditions to encourage your new animals to procreate.
“By keeping the water at a high acidity and a comfortable temperature, your shrimp will start spawning in 2 months,” he says.
Shrimps usually carry around 15 eggs, which means you could potentially have 30 more shrimps after buying just 2 females.
“Females can breed once a month,” Yang said.
“Once the babies have grown for a month, that’s when you can sell each one for $15.”
With just one tank, you can take home around $500 a month selling your babies once they are all grown up.
Hugo has even more tanks and said it takes around 2 hours of maintenance per week to keep the sideways choppy going.
No more side hustle
It comes as fellow TikToker Christina said she was able to quit her full-time job once she realized her print-on-demand business was much more lucrative.
The scammer, who goes by the name cuonline on TikTok, now offers training and helpful tips for those looking to get started.
She recently posted a TikTok revealing how easy the process is.
Christina said this hustle is perfect for people with little or no technical or marketing skills.
Plus, you won’t even have to show your face while you’re working.
She also pointed out that print-on-demand isn’t just limited to shirts and other apparel.
Christina said people are having great success printing products such as:
- Brain teaser
- wall art
- pet collars
Getting started is easy and can even be done in just one day.
The first thing you need to do is create an Etsy account and then set up your Etsy shop.
This means adding a bio so members of the Etsy community can get to know you and your products.
Next, you will need to find a supplier.
Christina suggested using Printify, but there are tons of choices.
Printify allows users to print a wide variety of products.
They have about five categories: womenswear, menswear, kidswear, accessories, and homeware.
Christina said to connect your Etsy shop to Printify for seamless printing, inventory, and shipping.
Then you’ll head over to Canva and create a design for any product you want.
You will then want to save this design and fill in the product information for the item you created, including a title and price.
Once that’s done, you can post it to your Etsy shop and wait for buyers.
When someone chooses your product and you get a sale, you don’t have to do anything.
Printify will automatically send you a notification that the sold item will be shipped and printed to the customer for you.
If you earn extra money from secondary activities, keep in mind that the earnings are taxable.
