    12 inch midas cichlid , $200 dollars, this is a chance to own a great fish that will breed with a female, he's 3 years old , u can see he is the one in the single pictures, and i show u in the tank with his brothers , im selling him because hes fighting my other males, and he needs to be alone

    Pretty fish, but you may be pricing your self out of a sale. I had a hard time selling a 8" male for $15.

    I understand , but a fish like this i would rather keep than give it away for pennies, this fish is for a certain type of hobbist who knows what he wants and willing to pay for it , if i dont sell him, i will keep him and when he gets bigger the price will be more no less:D

    I think you should keep it and grow it out! I agree with Jon Clark, I think you priced it way too high.. they run 20-40 for same quality or better.

    Hey buddy, I don't think they meant any disrespect.

    What kind of fish is it? Midas or Devil?

    Unless proven otherwise, it's most likely a little of both...

    Try Craigslist. Someone might buy it.

    Nice fish but a hybrid and pretty common.

    Pretty fish. Are those all males or do the females get the humps as well? (Sorry for the stupid question)

    How big of a tank is that?

    What we have here is a breeder that takes pride in his fish and i dont blame him for the price if you guys arent buying it then there is no need to comment.

    It's what we do

    Would that apply to you as well? No harm done in any case - seemed like everyone's remarks were pretty tame.
