    Free for collection; 4 x red stripe eartheaters (geophagus surinamensis)

    Age and condition: All roughly 6inch in length, had for roughly 3 years, good health, good appetite, showing some lovely colours. Very friendly fish, currently live with cardinal tetras, rummy nose tetras, black neons, black widow tetras, cories, and rams - never had a problem with bullying or eating of tank mates.


    Quantity for sale: 4

    Reason for Sale:
    1) Their physical size is unsettling the other fish. (rams are trying to breed and geo comes thro the middle of their turf oblivious lol)
    2) they're busy diggers, forever digging plants out, and making the tank look like the moons surface.
    3) want to restock with smaller fish, and not sure how they would react with new comers.

    Delivery or Collection: Collection prefered, could travel so far...

    Sales price:Free

    What beautiful fish - best of luck in finding a home for them.

    Wish I could take them, but I'm in North London so I don't think there'd be any way of getting them down here!

    Oh why do you have to be several hundred miles away :sad: Would have snapped them up to go with my 4 I already have.

    Hope you find them a good home, they are beautiful fish :)

    For those that are miles away from me, you could consider THESE
    No idea on the price, might not be as bad as you think, could be worth trying their free estimate.......

    i will take them, im in morecambe so only 20 minute drive at most. Pm me with details if you still have them and could pick up next friday?
    They would have a good home in 1000 litres of water.
    Let me know when you can. Cheers, Dave
