Hypothetically wanting to de-stock a fish...?

OK so I realize that this may not turn out to be the most popular thread but I am sure that I am not the only hobbyist out there that has been in this situation. Let's say - hypothetically - that I made a mistake with getting a rainbow shark for my 32g tank. Let's say - hypothetically - that I was looking to remove him from the tank. Now I don't have another tank that I can put him in so I would have to - hypothetically - give him away.

What are the options? Will the LFS take him back or do I have to find him a new home with another individual? What are everyone's experiences with this kind of situation... hypothetically?

LFS will take them back, but not with a refund -- you're going to have to donate it. i'd ask them just in case.

Awesome post Hawkin!!!

Hypothetically, in case this ever happens to anyone in real life bring it back tot he LSF you got it from - hypothetically- and tell them they advised you on the wrong size fish for the wrong tank and that these are too large for a 32g and need a ~80g tank- hypothetically- nicly ask them to exchange it for something else that fits your tank...just all - hypothetically- of cause

Otherwise offer it to folks here in the Classifieds or aquabit or any kinda local free paper you can put add's into....just all - hypothetically- of cause

*hypothetically* if you've talked up and your LFS has gotten to know you...*hypothetically* you can trade the fish in for food or new goodies...*hypothetically*
I trade my excess Guppies *hypothetically* for food and "stuff"...there never seems to be a glut of Guppies around here!! Your LFS *hypothetically* should give you something for your fish,if you've not had it for long...*hypothetically* that is! I've gotten to know either the managers and better yet,the owners! I just don't know what people do with the Guppies,'cuz I'm always being asked for more???!*hypothetically*

Talk to the LFS. Some will take them back and give you something for it. Usually not full price. But it's better than nothing.
