Two barred rabbit fish

Hello,

I'm selling my large and fat two barred rabbit fish. At least six inches from head to tail. She is in my 120gallon eel tank. I'm trying to reduce my bio load due to having three eels in one tank.

She will need at least a 120 or larger. She is big. Had her for years as a baby. Healthy and happy.

$45

Forest hills queens

Pick up only.

Will need a five gallon bucket with half water to transport her.

Will post pictures tonight after work.

Thanks

It's a shame you need to let go of all these fish, what kind of eels do you keep that they cause such a heavy load on the bio filter? Dragon I assume?

I have three full grown adults. Dragon, banana and skeletor. I have about 8ft in eels. That's a huge bioload in itself in a 120gallon. I had six fish, trying to cut down to four fish.

Ever see an eel poop? That'll answer your bio load question.

Thanks

Yeah, I love eels as well, currently have a snowflake and yellowhead. Hoping to one day get a green or homeycomb. The rabbit fish looks nice but unfortunately I already have a massive spotted rabbitfish and they wouldn't really get along. If you end up needing to downsize further and plan on selling the purple I'd love to add one of those to my reef.

Purple stays! I have three large rabbits. I'll let the two bar go because she is the largest. Beautiful fish!
