Downsizing

Howdy fish folk,

I haven't posted in quite a while. I have decided to downsize. I am taking down my 40 g breeder and my 10 gal. planted. I have the following available for a good home. All available for a reasonable offer.

1 pair breeding Tapajos Orange Head (approx. 3 years old)
About a dozen cinnamon loaches
5 misc. cories including one brochis
1 microctenopoma

java fern
anubias
java moss
some other green stuff

I may also have some seasoned driftwood. I have to see what fits in my 75.

75 gal.--Tapajos Red Heads, Cardinals, C. sterbai, L182

40 breeder--Tapajos Red Heads, Rummynose, Microctenopoma ansorgii, Cinnamon Loaches, misc. cories, brochis

10 gal. fry tank: Boraras brigittae, Otos, C. sterbai

3 gal.--Cherry shrimp

20 gal. long--Rosy Danios, TBD

If your a cichlid lover, and want to do something then have african cichlids like everyone else Peter's breeding Tapajos Orange Head's are amazing. One of my favorite fish, and a great opportunity. I've seen these fish in person, and they are beautiful :-) If i had the room for them i'd be all over this myself.

I'm not into the image, but into the hobby...

Peter if you come west at all let me know. I have a 135G with a quad of Tapajos that would surely enjoy some new buddies.

I don't make it to MA generally except for PVAS events (I've been as far east as Worchester, once) but we may be able to work something out.

Sad news. The tank crashed. The large Orange Head wedged himself under a rock. I did not notice for a day or so. Pulled it out, cleaned the tank. The female looked great yesterday (better than when the male with alive). She was dead last night.

I am tanking the tank down on Sunday. The plants are up for grab if anyone wants them.
