    I've got about 7-8 bristlenose catfish juvis. They range in size of about 3-4cm.

    I'm after a keyhole cichlid or a reasonably mature angel fish.

    Cheers.

    Dear South East QLD OCAU'rs.

    I have the following fish for sale to a good home at good prices.

    2x Cleithracara maronii "Keyhole Cichlids" 7-8cm - $8ea, $15 together.

    Have kept these two since they were tiny little guys in a number of tanks. Very personable fish that are fond of community tanks, and they will ignore Tetras etc. Have shown very little breeding activity and have never spawned, I'm unsure of sex but at a guess I'd say both Male.

    1x Female Pterophyllum scalare "Angelfish" 10cm - $10

    Not really a fan of Angels, and we used to have a tank full of them, but this one was definitely my favourite. Absolutely stunning leopard-like body pattern when she's in a good mood. Unfortunately she's camera shy. Definite female as she's spawned by herself and with another female multiple times after I sold off the males.

    [​IMG]

    4x Crossocheilus siamensis "Siamese Algae Eaters" 8-12cm~ $Free

    Nothing special about these guys. Have done their jobs well enough in my two tanks and am looking to get rid of them. Catching them will be a problem, a huge problem I imagine, and I'm not looking forward to it. If you want photos let me know, they're the true algae eaters and have cleaned both of my tanks up very well for the last 8 or so months since I picked them up.

    I'll also consider letting go of my non-breeding colony of 6 Peppered Corydoras if anyones specifically interested. They're huge.

    Type: 3x Mikrogeophagus altispinosus "Bolivian Ram"
    Size: Approximately 7-8cm TL (Pretty much fully grown)
    Sex: Possibly 2M 1F, I'm not 100% on sexing these.
    Location: Caloundra, QLD
    Pricing: $8ea, $20 for all 3, but willing to take offers.
    Delivery?: To Brisbane suburbs, but only when I'm already heading down there, and for an extra $5.

    Currently being kept in pH 6.4 gH4 water where they're thriving. I believe I have one pair in the three but no attempts have been made to breed as far as I've seen. Good quality display fish with undamaged fins and trailers, only selling them because they'll be replaced with different dwarf species.

    Photographs available on request.

    Hi Guys,

    I am moving, and want to decomission my tank for a bit until I can build it back up. Its only got like 5 fish in it at the moment anyway. If anyone wants them they are free, just have to come and pick them up.

    ATM it has

    3 Black widow tetras
    1 Golden Danio
    1 Flying Fox
    1 Kuhli Loach somewhere!

    I also have a couple of Amazon Swords, and about 4 or 5 crypts and anubias in Terracotta pots which your most welcome to as well.

    I live in Western Sydney, can come get them any week night or weekend just let me know.

    Thanks
