Yeah.... I don't know anyone who would have that many tanks for guppies alone...... If he sold them in smaller batches and could ship them, he would sell a lot more.

You could sell to a fish store(s), they might tale a batch that big, or a sizeable chunk.

If he's willing to pay the shipping to 55372, I would be happy to take them off his hands. If he really just needs to get rid of them all / what he doesn't sell.

IMO you are probably never gonna find someone who wants that many guppies. That's just insanely too many.

Try breaking it down into multiple sets, or sell as many as someone is asking for rather than trying to sell as a whole. Not many people want 150 mutt "fancy" guppies. Maybe if they were a good quality strain then someone would take them, but not pet store fish.
You'll probably want to drop the price down to like $50 if he's dead set on selling in one package. Maybe someone will take them as feeders for that price.
