| | Free to a good home: Solitary Red Swordtail female, Upton/Hopkinton MA area
OK, as long as I've been discussing putting fish up for adoption, I got a single Red Swordtail female that came along as an "extra" with some Red Wag Platies I bought at the BAS auction in early November. The Red Wags are breeding like, well... platies.
So Ms. Sword is in there, surrounded by platies and their babies. She's pretty big (2" to 2.5") and fairly pushy. I've decided I need to reduce some of the bioload in that tank. She is a tomatoe red color, with some flecking of black in her hindquarters. NOT show material, but a well shaped red fish may be just the thing you need in your green planted tank.
I don't mind keeping her, (although she may get relocated to a different tank) but if there is someone who enthusiastically would WANT her, she's just not appreciated fully where she is now.
I could drop off in the Boston/Cambridge/Arlington/Newton area (depending on day of the week). I'm in Upton, near Hopkinton, MA.
