Exclamation SCAPE member emergency

OK, folks. Last night I got an urgent call from TetraFreak as he was packing his rental truck to move to Kentucky. He asked if I was willing to buy his 150g tank as he didn't have room.

Well, that wasn't all. He also didn't have room for the 25g Eclipse "show" tank. But more on those later (as I get the time).

For now...there are six very attractive bolivian rams living in one of my 5g buckets. These guys could really use a home. Is there anyone in SoCal looking for Bolivian Rams or that has a ram friendly tank? It looks as though there are a couple females in the group for potential breeding. And, IIRC, these came from a breeder in Ohio or something like that (I was tired last night talking to Ben).

Let me know.

--Mike

p.s. I bit the bullet and have the lemon tetras and panaque's in my 50g now

Edit: I'm stupid. Bear with me

I unfortunately don't have room for the fish right now, but I may be able to help transport them to Orange County if needed.

Mike, I think I'm going to be working in the Oceanside / Escondido area on Thursday and Friday. You have my #, give me a call if you need some help.

Shrimpy1,
I don't think they are. They are South American Cichlids.

Carl,
Maybe we could meet at Tri City Tropical Fish early afternoon on Friday? And then you can Kurtis could work something out?

Kurtis,
Would you want me to try and sex a pair?

Mike,
Early afternoon might be tough for me, but I'll definately be available by 5 or 6 (could be earlier, I just never know ahead of time.)

A pair would be fine, I would take more if I could but as it is my 20 doesnt have any hardscape in it yet till I get some rock this weekend to put in there.

If I could get a male/female pair that would be nice!

I wouldnt actually have access to a car till this weekend so Im kinda out on that deal.....

Ahh...5 or 6 is tough because the kids are in swim lessons 5:50 to 6:30

I'd ship them if someone tells me what bags would be good to pack them in. Their fins look spiky
