We are happy to offer fish for free or at a reduced cost in order to find them a good home. The following are a few of the reasons we will put a fish up for adoption and will always be specified for each fish offered:

  • Given to us to provide a good home
  • Imperfect fish
  • Just want to make room
Our guarantee is not valid for adoptions :duh:

We are trusting MR members to be responsible and not re-sale a fish they got cheap or for free at a profit. This offer is to help MR members, who may not have the money to spend on fish, to have the opportunity to care and enjoy fish they may not have otherwise purchased.

Should you adopt a fish and can no longer provide for them we encourage you to re-post on MR as an adoption. We certainly will take the fish back and re-post as well.

MR Donors receive priority :)

Water Conditions: 72-78? F, dKH 8-12, pH 8.1-8.4, sg 1.020-1.025

FREE TO A GOOD HOME

That's awefully nice of you. Wish I could house the little guy, but I can't. Hope you can find a good home for him. Let me know if you ever have any blue dotted sleeper/glider gobies, I'll be more than happy to provide them with a caring home. :birthday:

I must say that may be the coolest thing I have ever seen from anyone in this hobby especially coming from a vendor. I have been in this hobby for a very long time and it is fantastic to see someone putting livestock first. I stand up at my keyboard to give you a standing ovation. Hopefully the rest of us can live up to your led.

i would like to add to the list..
i have a 3" Gold stripe Maroon Clown.

He is 100% non-aggressive towards my other fish.

Only problem i must warn is that he diggs A LOTTTTTTTTTT and will move rocks!!

I also adopted him from another member. But i am now moving on from my FOWLR and starting to keep a few zoos. And with the standstorm that he creats he covers my lower laying rocks with silt!!

He is FREE to someone that understands the risk involved! ( but if you have a small reef-safe fish or a small skunk cleaner shrimp, snails, or hermits you'd like to trade , that will be great)

Male Flame Wrasse (Cirrhilabrus jordani)

General Information:

Minimum Tank Size: 90 gallons
Care Level: Moderate
Temperament: Peaceful
Reef Compatible: Yes
Water Conditions: 72-78? F, dKH 8-12, pH 8.1-8.4, sg 1.020-1.025
Max. Size: 4"
Diet: Carnivore
Origin: Hawaii

This fish is beautiful and healthy as you can see. It has a slight imperfection on its side. It looks like it may have been hurt at one point but all of its coloration is normal in that area. Just a slight indentation. The fish has been QT'd and we have it it over a month. Eats frozen mysis and Hikari Marine-S pellets.

Adoption fee is $75!!!!!!!! This fish sells for as much as $250 :eek:

If you want a female to go along with it the cost for the pair would be $135.

I don't have a store. I work out of my home and so does my partner on LI. Currently I am in the process of moving into a house in NJ so I really don't have anything impressive as far as facilities. However, when I move that will be a different story :) We just started so in a month or so we should almost be at full strength. When we are all set up I'm going to post pictures of the facilities. Eventually we want to open a store but the timing is not right at the moment.

I'll keep you posted on the wrasse and thanks for offering a good home to the fish :)
