1 very large Oscar free to a good home. Have a look at the bottom of http://forums.overclockers.com.au/sh...677812&page=14 for a few pics of him. I'll also chuck in a fully grown male bristlenose. Don't care if I keep the bristlenose but the Oscar has to go.

Default EOI - Ps. Elongatus

Just going to put an EOI out there for people after some juvenile Pseudotropheus elongatus, they're the Mpanga colour morph (yellow tail and fin ends).

Basically I bought 3 from Aggies Aquariums last year, and they've not stopped breeding since, I now have more than I care to count and as they mature I fear my tank is going to end up overstocked.

I wont consider parting with them until they're at an age where there's a reasonable chance of sexing them (no fixed timetable), as given the species aggression issues, Male-to-Female stocking ratios are important.

Also I won't be giving them away FREE, simply to stop people taking them for the hell of it, but cost will be suitably low (swaps considered; but don't make any offers now please).

It'll be PICKUP ONLY - I'm ~15mins NE of CBD.

So if you're interested - shoot me a PM so I can get in touch when they're available.

Nope.
See: here and here.

A nice shot of a Mpanga morph male (here) which looks very similar to my alpha male (not for sale) who is aptly named "Bastard".

Oosh, I've done a bit of reading about these fish... I have a 24 Gallon (90Litre) tank with 10 male guppies which I think are midly aggressive but that's open to opinions.

Do you think your Pseudotropheus elongatus would do OK in such a sized tank with guppies?

Definitely not, Africans are best kept in groups and the tank size is much too small for a 6.5" fish.

OK much appreciated for the info there japes.

Given enough budgeting, when I get my tax money back this year (less than 12 days according to the ATO) I should HOPEFULLY be able to purchase a massive tank.

Very much so. Used to have this rather large tank (prob 1metre or so long, by 40cm high by 30cm deep) and I bred guppies in there and have always been into fish since I was a young kid.
