How much time do you really need to spend with these fish? If it is a case of water changes due to small tanks, then I suggest you upgrade into a large cycled, divided, tank. It is irresponsible to buy an animal then get rid of it because it become inconvenient, in my opinion.

I agree with Sivan...

Torch - (Technically sister's) - Male HM multicolor
Zane - Male DBHM White/blue-green marble
Regina - Female Delta Purple/red grizzle multicolor
Holding a grudge is like swallowing poison and expecting the other person to die.

you cant get a divider for a male and female. you'll need separate tanks. As for selling her it probably wont work. From what I can pick up you've had her for a while. No breeder is going to want an older girl. For a pet you'd have to find the right person and then they will have to be willing to pay your price for her. I don't know where you planned on selling her but it is pretty irresponsible just to get rid of her because she doesn't fit into your tank anymore .

Feel free to message me any questions, I'll try to help the best I can!

It is a male and female, divided tank is not an option...

I didn't realise is was a male and female. I don't know how that important detail slipped through my reading.

ok thanks yeah I think I'll just keep her, and I wasn't meaning getting rid of her because she was an inconvenience, I was thinking of it because of a thingamagig, but then I changed my mind. I was thinking that because i didn't know if I had another tank for her, but it turns out I do so yeah
