Any local interest in some Black Moscow guppies, or perhaps some Green or Blue?

Just had a few drops from some very, very nice strains, including winning IFGA lineage and need to make some room.

Hmm, now you have me thinking...I didn't want to do CO2 but I guess I should watch out for algae. The bulb is in the standard top that comes on a 5g tetra setup. I guessing it's no more than 12" off the bottom. I'll have to see if I can borrow a par meter somewhere.

Let me know if you need any fish or plants. I'm right in Morton which is likely 10 minutes from you.

Hi All,

I have 6 juvenile Crenicichla Compressiceps for sale. I picked them up for a planned tank but when in a Larger/More Agressive direction.

These guys are healthy, flawless condition. They range from 2.5-3.25 inches including tail (I tried sexing a few out).

They are dwarf pikes and can be kept in a planted tank, a community with fish larger than neon tetras, or in a species tank.

I will keep a pair and put the other 4 up for sale.

$10 each PU in SE Pennsylvania.

Heres are some links on the fish for your research:

http://www.seriouslyfish.com/species...compressiceps/

PM me if intersted.

Checking in from 30,000ft over the desert southwest. Flew to Phoenix to see my moms new snowbird house. Really hoping my wife fed my discus while I was gone. They're the only livestock I care about in any of the tanks I have running.
