When Lin Yuan approached the pond, he felt that the spirit qi was much more concentrated.
The middle-aged lady pointed at the Spirit-Siphon Goldfish inside the pond and said, “The smaller ones in the pond are all normal-grade. That reddish goldfish, which is twice as big as the other Spirit-Siphon Goldfish, is elite-grade.”
Lin Yuan asked curiously, “Boss, what are the prices for Normal and Elite Spirit-Siphon Goldfish, respectively?”
The middle-aged lady chuckled and said, “You don’t have to keep calling me Boss. I should only be slightly older than you. Just call me Big Sister Xin.
“Normal Spirit-Siphon Goldfish, regardless of subspecies, cost 0.5 Radiance dollar each. The Elite Spirit-Siphon Goldfish costs 5 Radiance dollars.”
Lin Yuan already knew that the Elite Spirit-Siphon Goldfish would be expensive, but after hearing it cost 5 Radiance dollars, he couldn’t help but be surprised.
Zhou Jiaxin noticed Lin Yuan’s surprised expression and explained, “I have already quoted a very reasonable price for the Elite Spirit-Siphon Goldfish, and that is due to its poor subspecies. If it was a superior subspecies, the price would be at least 7 Radiance dollars. The other places sell Normal Spirit-Siphon Goldfish of different subspecies with different prices too. But at my place, I sell them for the same price. Most of the time, people would pick them based on their looks. Not many Creation Masters are willing to take the task of evolving these feys.”
Lin Yuan nodded in response.
The Spirit-Siphon Goldfish was actually the commonly-called goldfish before the Spirit Qi Awakening. The Telescope, Ranchu, Lionchu, Ryukin, Butterfly Telescope, and so on were all subspecies of the goldfish, and they were all called Spirit-Siphon Goldfish.
The different subspecies of Spirit-Siphon Goldfish didn’t have a great difference at normal-grade and elite-grade, but their evolution direction would be different after reaching bronze-grade.
For this time, Lin Yuan wanted to purchase a Telescope Spirit-Siphon Goldfish. It was said that if the Telescope subspecies evolved toward the ancestry line, it might activate the thin dragon-species bloodline.
That would be the same as jumping through the dragon gate. However, the possibility of it happening was minute.
Previously, a high-ranked Creation Master had nurtured a Telescope Spirit-Siphon Goldfish to bronze-grade, and it had evolved toward the ancestry line, awakening the dragon-species bloodline.
The Spirit-Siphon Goldfish that had awakened the dragon-species bloodline had immediately been placed in the Star Web’s Rare Lifeform Pavilion for an auction and sold for an astronomical price.
Lin Yuan wanted to attempt and see if he could activate the dragon-species bloodline within the Telescope Spirit-Siphon Goldfish at bronze-grade. In fact, even if he couldn’t activate the bloodline, it wouldn’t be bad either. The Spirit-Siphon Goldfish’s basic ability was already incredible enough.
Lin Yuan wanted to purchase a Spirit-Siphon Goldfish and experiment to see how long he would need to evolve it. He would then see if the Spirit Lock spatial zone, which had concentrated spirit qi, could allow the Spirit-Siphon Goldfish to evolve at a speed that was several times faster.
If his Spirit Lock spatial zone was able to evolve the Spirit-Siphon Goldfish faster, then his store could focus on selling Elite Spirit-Siphon Goldfish. Such a store would have a reputation that would spread swiftly.
Of course, all of this would have to wait until Lin Yuan finished the order for the five Web-Spraying Spiders.
After all, Lin Yuan didn’t have enough capital to purchase Spirit-Siphon Goldfish right now.
Lin Yuan picked a black and healthy Normal I/Normal Telescope Goldfish from the pond. He was planning to purchase some energy ores with the rest of the money to enhance and check the limits of the spirit qi concentration in his Spirit Lock spatial zone.
Lin Yuan purchased the inferior energy ores from Zhou Jiaxin at the price of 500 Federation dollars for each catty. He purchased a total of 2,000 catties, leaving him with just 0.9 Radiance dollars.
Lin Yuan didn’t spare the 0.9 Radiance dollars either and purchased some Butterfly Shells.
The Butterfly Shell Beast was a kind of deep-sea fey, and Butterfly Shells were made by polishing and grinding the Butterfly Shell Beast’s shell. There were all sorts of patterns and shapes.
The Butterfly Shell Beast had plenty of different colored shells, which didn’t have a big difference in price.
Lin Yuan chose the yellow ginkgo-leaf-shaped Butterfly Shells. After delicate polishing and grinding, the Butterfly Shell was shining with pearl-like luster.
These Butterfly Shells were mainly used as fodder for the Spirit-Siphon Goldfish. As spiritual ingredients, the Butterfly Shells had a slight effect of awakening a water-type fey’s bloodline.
Also, when these golden-yellow ginkgo-leaf-shaped Butterfly Shells were placed at the bottom of the Spirit Lock spatial zone’s pool, they gave off a serene deep autumn scenery. It was spectacular.
Lin Yuan spent his 0.9 Radiance dollars and bought a bunch of Butterfly Shells. There were roughly over 100 Butterfly Shells, and they should be enough to feed the Spirit-Siphon Goldfish for three to five months.
Lin Yuan hoped that the Spirit Lock spatial zone could enhance the Spirit-Siphon Goldfish’s growth. It wasn’t difficult for him to increase the grade of the Spirit-Siphon Goldfish because he could purify the spirit qi in the air before channeling it into the fey’s body. This method would allow a fey to absorb the spirit qi directly, so the Spirit-Siphon Goldfish wouldn’t reject it.
The time required to evolve a Spirit-Siphon Goldfish was actually ten times longer than other feys. Evolving the Spirit-Siphon Goldfish was actually not good for him. When evolving feys, Lin Yuan also wanted to increase his strength. He didn’t wish to nurture the Spirit-Siphon Goldfish and not be able to increase the speed of spirit qi absorption.
Zhou Jiaxin didn’t expect her store to suddenly receive such a huge order. Therefore, she asked Lin Yuan, “You are purchasing so many inferior energy ores to nurture a huge number of low-grade feys, right?”
Lin Yuan didn’t nod or shake his head. He smiled and said, “Big Sister Xin, I require quite a bit of energy ores for my daily operations.”
Zhou Jiaxin looked at Lin Yuan, feeling that he was emitting a plant’s refreshing presence after rain and made her feel indescribably closer.
Zhou Jiaxin immediately sent a request to add Lin Yuan’s Star Web account.
“Let’s add each other to the friend list. If you need anything else next time, you just have to tell me directly. If the store doesn’t have the spiritual ingredient, I can help you to get them with the proper price.”
Lin Yuan gladly agreed. Most of the spiritual ingredient stores would sell mostly low-grade or mid-grade goods. Even if the store owner had high-grade spiritual ingredients, it wouldn’t be displayed in the store.
All spirit qi professionals would think of all methods to evolve feys, so some of the rarer spiritual ingredients would never have sufficient supply.
After adding Zhou Jiaxin’s Star Web account, it would save Lin Yuan plenty of trouble. If he needed anything, he would just make a direct order.
This Class 3 store’s spiritual ingredients might not be the cheapest, but their quality was all of a certain standard.
“I might have to purchase more energy ores and Butterfly Shells from Big Sister Xin next time. I might even purchase a few more Spirit-Siphon Goldfish.”
“Will you still need the same inferior energy ores next time?”
Lin Yuan nodded. The higher the grade of the energy ores, the purer the spirit qi contained within. It would be easier to channel the spirit qi out of the energy ores for the feys to absorb.
However, the Spirit Lock spatial zone’s spirit pool could dissolve the inferior energy ores into spirit qi. Since that was the case, inferior energy ores were naturally more worth it.
Zhou Jiaxin noted it down but was rather surprised in her heart. Inferior energy ores could only be used to nurture Normal and Elite feys. How big must the fey breeding base be to need such a huge amount of low-grade energy ores?
