WANTED: Small fish to adopt for my 120, can trade for plants

Thank you everyone. I'm all traded out on plants for this weekend and will be making pickups/deliveries on Friday. I should have more to trade in a couple of weeks since the jungle grows quickly and will post a new thread then. Thanks again to everyone who responded! Have a happy holiday.

I'm looking to adopt some fish for my 120 gallon planted community tank. If you're looking to rehome fish, let me know. I'm happy to pick up as long as there are several at a time, or you can drop off if you'd like to see where your fish will be living. You're welcome to ask questions or see the tank beforehand. I've 25+ years experience and a top notch tank.

I can offer plant clippings in return.

Any types of small fish that stay small will work and some kinds of shrimp. If guppies, male only. I currently have room due to old age attrition and can take at least 15, perhaps more. Cories, rasboras, tetras, neons, cardinals, etc. Healthy only, as I am unable to quarantine at this time.

Located NYC, UES.

I have baby silver angels I raised for trade. Can you take a picture of your windelov and dwarf baby tears from your tank?

I may have a picture on my computer at home and can check.

...But I'm afraid that angels would not be appropriate for my tank. I can only take small fish with small mouths and maximum sizes of 2.5".

And I should also mention to everyone...for any fish that breed super easily...only males please. Some is ok, but I really fish that never stop. I've been through population explosions before and since I can't bring myself to part with my fish I end up in a horrible cycle of extra tanks and months of sexing babies! So I guess that includes guppies, mollies, platys, and probably a few others...
