Today was that sad day when my extra males went to the pet shop. This was an especially sad occasion, as three of the four fish that left were fry born and raised in my care.

The pet shop guy was very nice about it all, he offered me some store credit, which will be aquasafe soon enough. And, the tank really is happier for it, fewer hiding fish, and Shep sure is happy, since it was mainly competition for him that left.

The pet shop people were also very complimentary, apparently my fish are really large and healthy, and really good looking (despite being all scared and hiding their colours).

I know this is an important part of keeping a healthy malawi community, but I really will miss those guys. I hope they find a good home, and soon.

That's a really nice way of thinking about it. That this way, they might get their own tank to be the boss of. Thank you, Eddie :)

I had to remove all the rocks to catch them :|
