Free Silver Dollar

Postby Tom » Fri Apr 27, 2012 6:44 pm

I have a fat (well, as Silver Dollars go...) healthy common Silver Dollar (Metynnis argenteus) available free to a good home.
Fish is between 4 and 5 inches.
You must be willing to pick it up in Burlington, Ontario, Canada.

I got it from a friend with a 45g tank containing a Black Acara and a couple African cichlids.
He used to have 2 SD, and they killed the other one.
When I got this guy around 5 or 6 months back, he practically had no fins left, but he's 100% now.

If only there weren't passports required.

Canada is FULL of terrorists.

I've got a friend somewhere up there. Should go for a visit and get the bugger. Almost bought some at the lfs the other day. One was the size of a Nickle with fins. But the prices around here for SDs are stupid. Lol

They'd want $15-20 for one this size at the lfs here.
They bought my Red Hooks for $15 and sold them for $35 (each).
