I'm happy to give these fish away dirt cheap, but I'd like to keep them together. Theses have been stable unaltered tanks for at least 2-3 years now, and so the fish all get along. And there is just so many places for the fish to hide that catching and selling them separately would be very difficult.

Once the fish are gone I'll start selling off all my equipment, also cheap.
Rush, If you still have the fish, reply to my PM and ill try to take some of them off of your hands.

When would it be convenient to take a look at it?


I do. I will be home all weekend, with the exception of Saturday morning.

The 75
6 Roseline Sharks (fully grown and beautiful)
4-6 Dwarf Chain Loaches (a rare beauty, rarely do I see a full school at once to know if the full compliment are still there)
2 Bristlenose Plecos
10 Harlequin Rasbora
3-4 Oto
1 Red Tailed Shark
2 Flying Foxes
1 Spotted Raphael Catfish
1 Purple Glofish Tetra

The 29
4 Blue Tetra
10 Snakeskin Barbs
1 Pictus Catfish
4 Bronze Cory

I'm really hoping someone is able to give these happy communities a new home. The last thing I want to do is end up having to drop them off at a local petco, because I don't think there are any decent fish shops left near me.
I can only offer you the best of luck with this and your future endeavors. This has to be indeed a painful decision.

If you're will to drive up Route 33, I can put you in touch with a couple of LFS up that way that may take the livestock off your hands. I don't think there's an alternative to the box stores in your area at all. The last of them was in Orefield and they closed a few years ago.

Fishies_in_Philly If anyone is interested in expanding into the dart frog hobby, my collection of darts is also up for sale. Pm me for details on those.

Also, my 125 is available for the right offer. [emoji3]

midlife_hobbyist I will try not to be too obnoxious promoting our non-profit club but if no one claims, you could donate to the club auction which is this Saturday May 14.

I'd think either or both (fish/lotus) would go well. If interested, let me know and I possibly could pick up if you cannot attend.

I keep pencilfish (not sure which species) but my 29 is fully stocked. They're great fish....Far more personality than I originally thought.

mastro Does anyone else here keep pencilfish? I have 2 male brown pencilfish (Nannostomus eques) that I'm looking to rehome. I purchased a large group from the Aquarium Center about 3.5 years ago as adults. The group has been passing slowly over the past year and a half, and our last female recently died. Since then, one of the males has become aggressive and has caused some damage to the other's nose and caudal fin. I'd ideally like them to go into another a group of pencils, which I think would mellow the aggressive one.

I also have a large tiger lotus if anyone is interested.

Limejoker Looks for shrimp and/or snails. Prefer MTS but still debating which ones. Looking for a local pick up. PM if anyone has anything for sale/trade. Thanks

themetalchurch I'd give Worldwide Aquarium & Pets in roxborough, they may buy from private breeders

On that note, if anyone local has peppered corys they're trying to get rid of give me a shout. Looking for a crew of 3-4 to keep my guys company.

German Blue Rams available

Hi all,

This is my first post on the forum, but I am a long time lurker. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in purchasing some german blue rams that I have been breeding. I got the parents from a quality breeder about a year ago and I am currently exploding with fry. I have hundreds of them all the way from wigglers to 4 month old juveniles. I am located in Chester County, but I frequently visit both Delaware and Lancaster Counties as well. I'm not sure if I'm willing to ship them; I would prefer a local buyer. Is anyone interested in a pair (or a few) or does anyone know of a LFS in the area that will buy from a private breeder? Thanks. I can post pictures of the parents with fry if anyone is interested.
