Wow. thats sad. He had them for ONE day. Pathetic.

Blaze - they aren't the posters fish. They found this on ebay. n3wport doesn't live in Texas, they are saying if anyone is in Texas they should try to save these poor little guys.

Life with Lupus is still a life worth living.
Dishing out the truth one post at a time

They are on craigslist also. I saw them but my husband would seriously have a heart attack if I brought anymore home. :(

Edit: I emailed them anyways. Lol! I told them I would take them for free without the tanks, help them get better then rehome them. They look like they have bloating and ratty fins. There are pictures of them on the craigslist post.

19 males all but 1 in 5 gal tanks
1 giant in a 16 bowfront
52 female sorority, 15 raspboras, 6 corydora sterbia and BN pleco in a 72 gallon

Other tanks - 135 gallon african cichlids, 48 breeder SA cichlid, 30 gallon hex goldfish, 30 gallon community fish and shrimp tank, 12 gallon hex growout

2 Chihuahuas, 2 1/2 lab 1/2 weim dogs and 2 cats
1 Husband and 1 3 year old princess

They look like 1 gallons divided but not sure. It doesn't say in the CL post. It is for sure sad though. You should see what they look like. Pitiful! They need some TLC!

ah ...alright I just noticed the dividers...I would take them in a heartbeat...If I lived in Texas and they weren't asking 39 dollars... The 2 on the right look really pretty ...A purplish crowntail and a white/cream colored betta...I hope they find a good home! It would be fairly cheap and easy to set up a nice home for them out of a plain 10-20 gallon tank with secure dividers...
