The fish are on their way out. I just need to find them a good home. I don't want them going to a novice with a small tank. I've had these guys for quite some time and want to be sure they grow to adulthood. I just don't know anyone with a large enough tank that is unplanted.
I will probably keep the balas as they are slow growing and never mess with the plants. They should do fine untill the end of this phase.
Thanks for the interest! I know that my tank looks like crap but I'm learning, and from a different approach.
