    Welcome to APSA Nico...which area you from?

    Trade it in at your LFS...or just give it to them if they don't want to trade you...because it is only gonna give you headaches in the future.

    Small cheap fish...you can always go for the classic Guppy ;) Nice thing...you can play with the fish and breed the colour variant you want...you'll always have new stock...

    Other cheap fish you can consider (neons, white cloud minnows, cherry barbs, leopard danios, zebra danios, harlequin rasbora, glowlight tetra, black neon tetra, etc). Depending on where you are at...they should all be between R10 - R20

    If you in Centurion...I have a few guppies I can throw your way...free of charge (includes 2 endler males ;) )

    Welcome!

    Like JAX said try to trade the fish at the LFS.

    Please add your location to your profile. It does not have to be specific, but just a general area helps especially if you have questions and people are trying to help you. For instance water in different parts of SA differ, so if somebody have to help with regards to pH or hardness it is much easier and quicker to help if they know in which area you are located.

    Enjoy the forum!
