Throwing out BLack Convict

ok, a black convict just stowaway with my feeder guppies. I jsut read they're aggresive and will eat my plants. It's still rather small... so either someone takes it off my hands or I feed it to my turtles. I live in Jersey City, NJ. PM me if you want. The moment I see my tank going to hell from this fish, it's going to my turtles.

i'm sorry,i can't pick him up because i live in australia

but may i ask why you guys are encouraging a person to end a fishes life?

i mean that one fish could go to a young and keen to learn fishkeeper and grow the hobby evan further.
but then again, i could be going whacko's.
anyone else believe what i am saying?

probably not :(
thanks guys for letting me be a mod! evan though it was a short while, i am still very grate full. :)

Convicts are so prolific and on top of that, very aggressive that no hobbyist would probably take a fish like that unfortunately. An inexperienced person probably will but I hate the idea of a fish suffering on his/her hand instead with gill burns from ammonia, ich and several horrible things. If no one likes a con, then it will have to be fed to the turtles.:)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Convicts are great feeders. If you keep piscivorous fish you probally wont have hard feelings about feeding a small fish to a bigger ones. Turtles will gladly accept fish if they can catch them.
