Would anyone be willing to give these cute guys a new home? I really need to get rid of them.



They are getting too big for my tank. I was misinformed about their size when they are fullgrown.

there nice but they will be really hard to get rid of as they are big fish and they are aggressive.

matt they dont fit in a 35 gallon, plus they are highly agressive and the "kissing" is actually fighting, i wouldnt recommend these fish to anyone unless its a species tank, these fellas get to 7-8 inches.

They are cute though, why dont you keep a few since you have a large tank?
Just be carefull as these fish arent the best for some people, actually most people, they are mainly sold to people who think the so called "kissing" is cool

do you think any reliable lfs will take them in, btw im not asking you matt :)

I already spoke to my lfs. They said that they won't take them because they don't keep them regularly. They aren't really aggresive to anyone except each other. They don't bother anyone else in the tank. There are five total. They are about 3-3.5 inches right now.
