    Hello All,
    Just found your forum whilst searching tank images on google :)

    I'm lyn & still a newbie when it comes to tropical fish keeping, Currently have a 4ft x 15"w x 18"d tank with around 35+ jewel cichlids which are dad & his brood ( He ate mum oops)

    I've decided to go back to keeping community fish as the lfs' to me dont stock enough cichlids or cichlid things so cant get what i need & with me not driving other further afield shops are out the question, Struggling to rehome/sell these cichlids so if anyone has any ideas please advise.

    Chat to you all soon , Lyn x

    Hi Lyn, welcome to FishLore :)
    Have you tried Craig's List or Freecycle.org?

    Craigs list? What's this hun.
    Yep tried our freecycle but the people who replied had tanks full of guppies & mollies , Nobody had cichlids or a tank suitable to put them in & i wont let them go to people with unsuitable set ups if you're with me

    Thankyou x

    Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't notice your country flag.
    Craigs List is a free advertising site. Perhaps you have something similar in your country.
    We understand you're not just wanting to give them up to just anyone.
    Maybe try you're local news paper or perhaps an aquarium club in your area.

    Ah ok thank you. Yep i'm keeping my eyes out but we don't seem to have anything like that locally or if we do i've not heard of anything.
    Thank you for the help x

    Welcome to Fishlore!

    Jewel cichlids are beautiful fish. I have four myself. The coloring as they mature is awesome.

    Hi Midnight - I'm in Hadfield (12 miles east of Manchester) so not too far from you. Can't take your cichlids I'm afraid but was wondering which fish shop you use?
