Best place to rehome fish?

Postby Fishandpitbulls » Fri Jul 24, 2015 1:32 pm

I have a new all-male mbuna/hap tank and I'm trying to rehome a couple of the fish. What is the best way to do that? I know some LFS will take them. I posted on Craigslist and on the FB page of my local cichlid group. Any other ideas? Any sites you would recommend posting on?

look for local aquarium clubs. Most have 3 or 4 auctions a year. Summertime is usually slow for auctions though

I thought someone provided info to you that there is an active Club in Denver? And you posted to FB page of your local cichlid group? One of the main functions of these groups is auctions. Many clubs have an auction at every monthly meeting.

Yes I did join the FB page for the local cichlid group, but haven't seen anything about auctions. I posted about the available fish on the FB page, though, and only had one interested person. She is an hour away and has a tank that is mixed with convicts and yellow labs. I'm a little hesitant to go for that...

Try the club section of this site. The people in those clubs tend to be more knowledgeable than the local forum group

Here in NJ they are often the same people. Both the club and the forum have auctions.
