Free Yellow Lab

Ok I posted in classifieds but just want to make sure it gets out. My 3.5 inch yellow lab is free to anyone who comes and picks him up. I want to restart the tank Sunday so he has to go. If no one contacts me by Sunday the cichlid dies.

P.S. I never did research before purchasing the cichlid so he is with a rosy barb, and a 29 gallon tank.

Pm me for pictures.

Would your local fish store take him maybe? Or do you have a friend or family member that can take him if no one here is able to?

I hope he can find a home. Yellow Labs are beautiful.

You don't have any other place to put him if no one can take him?

If you have a Facebook account, maybe there is someplace on there you could post him too? And maybe Craigslist? Classifieds in your local paper?

Here's a thought. Is Petco in your area still having the $1/gal sale ?

How long would it take for the new tank to cycle though? I know there is a petco close by but not sure if the sale is still going on.
