    I have hundreds of guppies in the outdoor ponds.
    Where can I bring them to cut the numbers back?
    Anyone want any?

    Find someone who has cichlids in their pond. :)

    At least you'll never have a mosquito problem! :D

    Charley sorry to say, but almost anyone you give them to will feed something else with them.
    Are they semi fancy? Any coloration at all?

    Beverlys pet center in Hollywood takes anything and everything that I've ever brought in.
    But they may not pay for them and they may end up as feeders.

    Lots of neon blues and snake skin. I'll post photos. All fancy no endlers.

    I have to admit that, when faced with a similar population explosion of platties, I ended up murdering them. There were hundreds. We don't keep live bearers now.

    I could house dozens.
    Maybe more.
    Those should not become food!
    Are you available this weekend at all?

    @ZEROPILOT just saw your text. Yes.
    These are in a pond that had a few red tailed ones in it. Most of the others are blue. I'll catch a few more at some point.

    Oh, boy!
    Two Ranchu for my new pond and about 300 guppies of all sizes!
    Thank you, Charlie!
    I officially owe you one.
