    I need to re-home my common. I wanted to keep him and get a 200 in a year or two, but he needs to go . He hasn't outgrown my 125 but he is getting very grumpy with my L239 - he has claimed the ENTIRE tank as his and even though i spread food out all over the place he swims to right in front of his cave and sits there. My L239 is what I would really like to do with a tank later so he is not going. Especially as he is fully grown at 5" - and will not be getting 2'!. I can bring him to my LFS, but I would rather find him an actual home so I could have some sort of hope that he will be happy. He is well adjusted and eats everything, just is getting more territorial. How can I find him a BIG tank ? Everyone I have found wants to put him in a 50-75 and seeing as I have him in a 125, it makes no sense to down grade his tank especially if he is grumpy in a 125! He/she is 8" and have had for almost 2 years. Any tips on where to look?
    125 gal- chromobotia macracanthus, Baryancistrus beggini(L239)
    60 gal - planning for (tentatively) Celestial pearl danios and a pseudacanthicus cf. leopardus (L-114) - pterygoplichthys disjunctivus (needs a new home!)
    20 gal - pangio kuhlii
    10 gal Q tank
    Counting the YEARS to get my 200 gal!!

    Try Monster Fish Rescue. They can post your fish on the adoption page and that can insure a happy home for him. They take all sorts of fish, and they would be more than happy to take him off your hands to get a good home for him. The only downside about them is they are located in Ohio. They do have a shipping process on their website though. It's pretty effective. That's my best guess.
