Thanks Craigslist

Picked up 6 female and one male kenyi yesterday, along with two female and one male strawberry peacocks. All for free. My tank finally looks like theres a few fish in it now. that puts my stocking at:

9 Kenyi- 2m-7fm
3 Bumblebees- I think theyre all female now... if not, 1m-2fm
2 Auratus- 1m- 1fm
2 Venustus- 1m- 1fm
3 Red Zebras- 1m-2fm
1 female yellow lab
3 strawberry peacocks- 1m- 2fm


Now, after getting all these free fish, I'm seriously considering selling the 150. IDK, but at least for now it looks alot better

Ask and you shall receive... I will warn you, you did not ask for good pics, or else there would be none. And as a side note, I do need to give credit to my wife for finding the ad. I never get on CL anymore, but she does, and she found them (the peacocks are what sparked her interest).
