I've been growing out the Nic babies with the parents in the 46g. They are over 1.5" now so time to take them to the pet store. The LFS only wants (has room for) ten. The chain stores in town is not allowed to buy them. I put some on Craigslist but no bites. What do I do with the rest. I guess I will have to put them down .

I could try fish stores in Richmond, but not worth the gas to get $1 a fish from them.

I also have 100 or so HRP growing out. My other fish wont eat them either.

Heres a vid of the chaos. I'm surprised the parents still go easy on them. And yes thereis a bunch of BA Tetras mixed in.

I have shipped before but this time of year is tough to ship. Plus I didnt think they are that rare.

Ya the male is a bruiser. Almost 8" I would guess.

Took 15 Nics to the LFS and got $1 each store credit.

The rest are going to my Cichlid club to be given out at the next meeting.

The HRP are just starting to look like fish and most have their stripes.

I guess about 100 of them. The big one at 45 secs is a HRP x Con hybrid i found in the other tank.

Thanks for the help....Bill
