Free Guppies, Neons, and Betta

Hey everyone, if this isn't allowed, please let me know. Looks like it's okay though?

Anyway, I'm looking to re-home some guppies that were given to me by a friend. She didn't realize that guppies have babies (I know...), so she ended up with hundreds. I offered to take in 8 but I'm wanting to buy some CPD's, therefore need to make room for them. Since I never really wanted the guppies I'd love to have someone take them off my hand. I have 3 males who have been fighting among one another so their fins are nipped in places.

I also have 4 Neon Tetras that I would like to re-home as well. I want to give them to someone who has a group of them at the moment because they are fighting. I don't want to get anymore (so I have no way of actually getting them to stop nipping at each other's fins). Living this way is no fair to them either, so hoping to give them to someone who has an established group. One of the Neons is missing an eye from a fight with a Betta over a shrimp pellet (more on this later). He/she has been like this for about a month now and gets along completely fine - no problems whatsoever.

Now, the last fish I am trying to get rid of is my Betta. I bought him about a year ago because he was on death's door. You know those pity buys? Yeah... I fell for it. He's been in quarantine for awhile and recently - in the last 3 months - I put him in the main tank after deeming him well enough. He has no socialization skills whatsoever and, unfortunately, he's been picking fights with every fish in my tank. My Neons and Guppies have taken the brunt of his bullying, but the Gudgeons - which are normally peaceful - have, without fail, fought back. I don't have the small tank that I originally had him in and I don't want to go out and buy another as I am trying to consolidate my hobby into one tank. I'm hoping that a good Betta owner - who will be able to give him a solo tank - will be willing to take this guy in. Or if you even have a bigger tank to offer him, that would be great. His fin has been growing back fine since I put him in a breeder cage, but that's no life for a fish.

These guy's are all free. If nobody can take them, I'll probably be taking them to a fish store. If anyone has suggestions as to where, that would be great!

I live in the Ballwin area and work in Chesterfield. I am willing to meet halfway within reason to other locations.
