so after alot of deliberation ive decided to rehome my 4 most agressive cichlids and just keep the parrots and 1 odd tigerbarb.
its just not fair on them to be in a smaller tank (true its only a little over 10 gals smaller but its made a huge difference in their agression levels, fish that got along before are chasing eachother and once perfect fins are not nipped.

so i put a listing on craigslist and got 2 enquiries right away, one guy came out and took one of them...
but the other guy, who was adamant he wants the most agressive, a gorgeous little jewel male, was supposed to come yesterday and still hasnt got back to me *grumbles*
meanie the jewel is currently in a little iso box because he is soooo agressive right now (he makes the zebras look sedate lol).

i just dont get it, why do people say there going to come and then just change their mind?

ive got a red zebra, a ob zebra and this red jewel left to find homes for and my local petstore (the only one of 3 that i would trust) doest usually take them in. im going to call them again today and see if they might at least take the jewel as hes the most desperate...
part of opening up communication is that everyone walks through the door; (or doesn't);
far too many fish people are really young, and it's EASY to say you WANT something and then have to
!) get away from the computer desk (extremely difficult for some)
2) make a commitment and then, follow through (next to impossible for some)
and finally,
3) say thank you............I'm still waiting
by the way, my internet "record" for "not doing something" is 27 emails...although currently I have an "sentfrommyiPhone" client that is on emial number 19. I sent her a picture of what I was turning into............a pumpkin!
