Hey guys,
I recently got a 60gal tank but it came with fish, some of which are not compatible. I also have a few fish from my established tanks that I’m looking to find new homes for due to overcrowding/bullying/breeding.

•12-13” red tilapia. His coloring is pretty awesome, but he’s got a face only a mother could love. Messed up mouth, but functional (I’m assuming make he as caught on a line/hook... you guys may know more than me). I cannot keep him in the 60gal he came with, and my Oscar and Vieja would be mad at me if I introduced someone else to their tank. Plus I had a tilapia before, and they’re buttheads.
The fish that came with the tank are currently in QT, and this guy refuses to let any of the small fish ( 🤦🏼‍♀️ previous owner put him with rosy barbs, corydoras, tiger barbs) onto the other side of the tank.
$10

• Red Devil cichlid (not 100% sure)
Also came with the 60gal tank. After QT I can probably get away with putting him in the 75gal temporarily with my convicts and bichir (population control)
$20

Convict Cichlids: Breeding adults, possible het for pink. Have a couple pairs from fish I’d bred that now produce pink offspring. No guarantee on genetics. Super hardy fish, original stock was 5-7 years ago. I want to move the 5 from my 150gal since the big fish are grumpy. I only want 2-3 pairs total, have about 10-15 convicts currently
5 for $20, likely 2 male 3 female.

Jack Dempsey, female. About 5”, she won’t grow any bigger, I have had her 6+ years. The Oscar and Vieja are bullying the smaller fish.
She has a male counterpart who is about 8”, not really sure if I want to rehome him or not.
•Female $10
•Pair $30

Royal Acara 8-9”
Eats like a pig, getting bullied a lot. A little too docile for the larger fish. The Oscar and Vieja only like each other.
$40

Pic of the JD?
yea for sure. I mostly have some of the male. The oldest of these pics is from February 😓
I can take some more when I’m home.

As far as JD go, the male is pretty nice. He humors the BP and will lock jaws without hurting him. The female is a spitfire, killed her mother.
They produced two batches of fry, terrorized the tank for a few days, then ate them due to stress I suppose. Since I don’t separate the male and female they don’t spawn.

I was supposed to be getting a 700gal PE tank for them, but then covid happened.
Right now there’s the Oscar, Vieja, acara, bloop parrot, 2 JD, H. Nemurus, and a Pleco sharing the 150gal. Hoping if I remove some tank mates they’ll chill out until I can get them a better set up.
