Anybody with a large tank need a really active schooler?

I have 20 emerald eye rasboras I'd like to remove from my 65g tank due to the fact that they're really rambunctious. They frighten things, they race around, they chase... they aren't aggressive, it's more like danios on red bull. They CANNOT be kept in a small tank or they get really upset and anxious. Does anyone with a tank over 3 feet long want them? They're free, if you can provide proof that you have a tank ready for them. They're fairly hardy, so a new tank should be fine as long as it's cycled.
Heck, I'll add some nano-tank-style wood in if you'll take them. I just want a good home for them.
They'd be good dither fish for something large-ish, I think, and they should be fine with cichlids that won't eat them.
List tankmates and I'll tell you if I think they'll get along.

These are awesome little fish, one of my favorite schoolers! I'd be happy to take them if you need to find them a home...I have multiple 3' and 4' tanks.

Has a LiCor and knows how to use it.

May I see some pictures of the tanks? Honestly, I like these guys, but they're messing stuff up... if you have a tank they'll like, one with a decent amount of swimming space, you're welcome to have them. I would like to rehome all 20 at once, though, do you have space for them?
I think I'll replace them with pearl gouramis or something, those are big and sweet and pretty.
I have a few pecan sticks I've gathered. They have bark on them, so they'll release tannins, but they're perfectly safe for fish. I'm using a batch of these, but I have a few left. Would you be interested? I'm not sure how to remove the bark. Soaking would probably work. Otos and large snails stripped the bark off most of mine after a while, so soaking + prying apparently works.
