Downsizng due to an imminent housemove where we'll no longer have room for our large tank. I've managed to find homes for most of my fish but have a few left that need a nice home within the next couple of weeks.
2 x garra rufa (should be in a bigger shoal, but got bullied by their previous shoal mates, poor dears)
3 x dwarf puffers (v. High maintenance will only take livefood)
I'm in the PE28 area of Cambridgeshire and can provide bags and polystyrene boxes for transport.
Please be aware my fish are my babies and I reserve the right to be picky about their next home.

Ooh, I'm in PE28! Are your puffers all in one tank? Are they OK living together? I've got a shrimp/snail breeding tank set up but I could bump them into a different tank and then have a 2ft tank free.

Eau our dwarves have always lived well in groups given enough room, 8 in a 180l seemed to be the limited. They seem to mostly ignore each other if there are lots of plants to hide behind. Such great characters and we'll miss them.
My DH is chatting to a work colleague who is interested in both species, so I'll let you know if they're still in need of a home once I've spoken to him later. I'd be more than happy to let them go to you as you're a very clever fishie person grin

Well, I'm fishie, that's for sure grin I wanted some dwarf puffers years ago and somehow ended up with peacock gobies instead. They look very sweet but I've heard they are grumpy buggers. Will be glad to give them a good home if they need it smile Are you moving far? You won't have to give up all your fish, will you?

We're hopefully moving to Thetford, waiting for everything to be signed and sealed. Giving up the vast majority of the fish; loaches, livebearers, garra, puffers, it's very sad. Just keeping one small tank for my albino bristlenose as I simply can't bear to part with him. He was my 21st birthday present from my dad and has seen me through 4 house moves, 3 boyfriends, the death of a dear friend and 2 jobs. Poor sod had had his fins talked off when I've had no other outlet, bless his scales!
The puffers are grumpy little buggers, yes, but so entertaining when hunting, especially for bloodworm.
