    Default Cichlids/Oscars

    Okie. I have a bunch of fish that I'm thinking about selling. I love 'em all, and they get along fine but there are going to be huge issues when they mature. I want to get rid of some, but not all of the ones I post. Depending on which sell first, I'll keep the others...does that make sense? lol

    Anyway, here:

    3 Pink Convicts (ranging from 1-2") - $2 each

    2 Flowerhorns (about 2") I will also not sell these to anyone who doesn't have adequate room in their tank and knowledge about them! - $7 each

    2 Oscars (about 4") - $5 each

    If you're interested in any of them, just let me know!

    Busy. Irritated. Leave me alone.

    My jack is at least 12 inches. I think that the standard is 9-10 inches but sometimes you can get one a little bigger or one a little smaller. My female is only about 7 inches. They are a breading pair named Romeo and Juliette. [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/lol.gif[/img]

    I don't know much about JD's. He was a really pretty fish, but not much I could do or keep with him with the tanks we have...same with the Oscars and stupid Flowerhorns lol

    I love my Jack's I just wish they wouldn't breed so much. That's why I named them Romeo and Juliette. [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/lol.gif[/img]

    Just to clarify, the only fish I'd be concerned about where they end up are the Flowerhorns. And only because they grow HUGE and are aggressive. The Convicts and Oscars...as long as you have room in your tank, I don't care [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/lol.gif[/img]

    From what I understand and have been told...if you added two Flowerhorns to that tank, there would be only one outcome in a matter of time: 1 Flowerhorn.

    They grow BIG, they grow FAST and they're MEAN.
