Might have to give away some Convict cichlid soon...

Hi all,

I have a big aquarium with lots of cichlid (these ones) however I'm starting to have too many of them as they are reproducing a lot...

I might have to give away some (as soon as they grow up a bit) - anyone interested? Free or very small price (in shopping centers they are sold around 12 - 13 CHF each).

By the way: they're quite aggressive and eat plants!

According to the link, they are prolific breeders and not in high demand. I don't know if I want to 'rescue' some from you as I already have a problem with overbreeding happy guppies ;-)...but let me know if you get stuck..I might be able to take a few...what do they eat?

They are omnivore : I feed them a mix of cichlids-specific sticks and flakes from vegetable origin.

Lol - I know ... their scientific name is "Archocentrus nigrofasciatus" but Convict Cichlid also sounds good

Maybe the Ops can add in the title that it's phishes...
