Fish needs new home!

Hi guys. These 2 need a new home. First one up a German Blue Ram I picked up at Petco. I believe she is a female (pink belly/blue specks on the black spot). She was an impulse buy and turned out to be a monster. Killed 3 of my pandas. I know it is just in her nature to be territorial. But I need to get rid of her! I've had her for about 2 weeks now. She is about 1 1/2" long. Please pm me only if you have a 20g+ tank.



Second one up is a Siamese Algae Eater (black line stretches through the tail, black spot on his belly as per a link DavidZ posted somewhere). I got him from Pacific and have had him for 5 months or so. Plan was to upgrade to a larger tank but that has been vetoed by my boss. He's about 3 inches now. For this guy, please PM me only if you have a 30"+ long tank.





Pick up only. Please bring all materials needed for transportation as I don't have any bags or compressed oxygen cylinders. I am in Bayridge. As always, please quarantine these guys just incase. I do not want to be blamed for anything. Thanks.

I didnt know Rams would kill cories ):
I'm working on a 2 x 2 x 1 (30 Gallon) cory tank (yeah it is a weird tank, because its actually a modified terrarium =D). I'm planning on getting 5 different species of cories (peppered, panda, emerald green, false julii, pigmey, or more if I find any suitable one) and besides the cories, I wanted a fish that would be a nice edition who would stay near the surface rather than the ground. I was debating between an angel or two, and a ram. After hearing about the cory incident above, I think I'll go with the angels lol. Plus I dont think Rams would really stay between the mid-high water levels (like in your pic).

I've been looking around the web and it seems it depends on the ram. I unfortunately have a 20g high tank. The ram seem to be bottom dwellers and with the smaller surface area, theres bound to be run-ins. I'm still workin on convincing my gf on getting a new tank but its highly unlikely.

Since you are working on a cory tank, just want to let you know; my eco-complete has erroded my cories' barbels so careful with your substrate selection!

Rams don't kill corys, is there a male GBR in the tank also?
By the way nice fish, too bad I am fully stocked, just picked up another Bn from Debbi today.

I am sure someone will pick them up, the siamese should not get any larger.

The ram definitely killed the cories. They had wounds on them. The worst I've seen from my other guys is the SAE pushing away an amano from some algae wafers. The male unfortunately died shortly after I got them. Will putting in a male lower aggression? I thought I would just be doubling my problems by adding a male.
