Hi everyone. My first post here. I bought a 150 FOWLR tank from a nice lady and she had a couple fish in there. The Snowflake Eel was easy to find a new home, the huge Blue Hippo is in a quarantine tank, the 5 inch Clownfish is with the Tang, and the Passer Angel is all by himself in a different quarantine tank.

I love this fish but I am sure he would make a meal out of all my corals and my 7 inch Crocea clam that I have transferred from my old 60 gallon to my new 150 reef tank.

The LFS will only do a trade once he sells from there for a small portion of what he sells for. I am just wondering what people do in this case.

He is super healthy and always hungry!

Here is a small pic taken with my iphone (sorry for the quality) with a small coral beauty (3-3.5 inch) on the side.

You could put him up on craigslist. Someone would eventually take him. Pretty fish though, if I had a fish like that I would devote a tank just to him.

Thanks! Yeah I have had him on CL for a little over a month with only a couple of responses. He is a great fish but I have a 60 gallon that he is way too big for, a 6 gallon nano, and my 150 reef.

I will just keep him up there and maybe the right person will come along. :)

Reach out to all the aquaculture/wholesale places in your area. I know there are literally dozens in the orlando area. Im sure they will take him and probably give you more than the LFS.

If its ok with you I know quite a few people running aquaculture and wholesale places in orlando. If you would like I can ask them if they would be interested. If so just let me know how much you are asking for it and I will email/call them.

Thanks for the help. I just want to make sure he finds a good home here shortly. The small 55 gallon that I have him in is not even close to the right size for him even temporarily.
