Bandit Cichlids in Georgia

I have a brood of bandit cichlids (Guianacara Geayi) that are growing beyond my ability to accommodate them. I have 30 to 40 that are looking for homes.

I've found that they are not a common fish (at least in the stores and circles that I frequent). Atlantis had a pair and I bought them on a whim early last year. They turned out to be a mated pair and did a good job of raising a brood. They get to 4" or so, and are on the peaceful side of semi-aggressive. I have them spread across 4 community tanks with swordtails, tetras, angels, blue rams, apistos, etc. The only fish they seem to pick on are the angels.

I am in the Powder Springs/Hiram, Georgia area.

Regards,

Jerry

I am not looking for money - just a good home for them. I think two or three would be fine in either a 20G or 38G. I have not had them in with guppies, so I am not sure if they would nip at their tails or not.
