I pretty much gave away those rilis, like 15 for $10, because I don't have another tank for them.

Oh, and another thing I do is, I always have an in-tank breeder box. I grab the net when they are eating, and net the culls in the breeder box. Sell them when there are like 40-50 in there.
I just netted out 20ish males, left 2 of the best in there. The rest are living in the 75G now!
I would sell them, but labeling them "RCS" would be kinda shady.
