Problem: to many convicts!

What started with only 5-6 convicts has lead to almost 40+. Almost all are more the and inch and a half long. I have batches of fry any where from 1-2 times a month. Bc there are so many... Most have not survived. I have down sized. Now I am looking o rehome the convicts. Anyone have any ideas?

Have you tried your LFS? Convicts breed like CRAZY!! I my experience even getting a LFS to take may be hard. But it's worth a try. Then maybe Craigslist?

What is LFS? I have talked to a few pet stores. Most are over stocked already with convicts.

LFS (local fish store)

Like I said before. It will be tough as many won't take them. There had to get rid of or should I say re home.
