Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I have a 30 gallon tank. In this tank I have a bunch of platies that will not stop breeding! There's about four generations of them already and a few days ago I spotted some more fry.
I don't interfere with all these birthings, my way of dealing with them is to just let natural selection happen. I end up getting 3 - 5 fish grow up to adulthood this way. At one point I thought my population stabilized as I haven't seen any fry for quite a while, but alas I guess they resumed their endless breeding.
At this point my tank cannot sustain any more fish and I need to do something with some of them. I'm thinking of getting rid of four adult females. They were born and raised right here in my tank. They are quite large, eat and poop a lot so I think they're the perfect ones to give up.
The question is who do I give them up to? I'm not the type of person to give them up and instantly forget about it. I care about my fish and want to give them up to a good environment where they won't be mistreated and will be taken care of well.
I'm not keen on taking them to the pet store since the nearest one is Petland and they don't treat their animals very well. The salesmen know barely anything about anything, and just dump the fish into any fish tank they can find that has similar looking fish.
I don't have any friends or aquaintances with aquariums. I don't want to put this on craigslist and such because I have no way of knowing what they will do with my fish.
