Fortunately, there is a LFS here that takes my guppy fry, and I bet they will take it and find it an appropriate home.
I think the rummy nose tetra are pretty, and it's very pretty to watch the way they swim so incredibly fast but stick together so well. Maybe I will just keep them instead of insisting they trade me out for the rasbora I had ordered, unless there's a big value difference of which I'm unaware.
Understood. The local fish store seems the best option. I have removed and destroyed problem fish, not nice but it sometimes has to be done when other tanks are not available for it; better this than seeing the other fish one by one get sick and die.
Rummys are one of the best shoaling fish in freshwater; my group of 22 are almost always together, swimming down the tank, cruising around plants, back and forth--quite a lovely site. You will like this fish. How many did you get? They are best in larger groups, say 10+.
