    FS: Aiptasia Eating Filefish

    Also known as Matted Filefish. We were getting over-run with Aiptasia. We tried many ways of killing them, but they just kept multiplying. So we decided to try the Filefish. He (she, I don't know) has absolutely decimated the little pests. I see no more in my tank, and it's only been a few weeks. I've been trying to feed him Rod's, but he has only shown passing interest. I will keep trying until he eats, or I find him a new home. So far he has been a model citizen. I've never seen him nip at anything I wouldn't want him to, and I have quite a few things that should tempt him. He's 3-4 inches. I'd like him to go to a good home, maybe someone who could get him to eat.

    I'll charge $30, which is less than we paid. I would like to reserve the right to be first in line to buy him back (for what I sold him for) should the next owner choose to re-home him again. He should be easy to catch.

    Pickup would be at my house in Algonquin, no deliveries.

    I really like this guy, so if he starts eating, the sale will be off.

    Thanks!!

    Just let me know. My schedule is always changing, but I'm sure we could work something out.

    OK, Best days for me are the weekends. I usually am an hour from my home which is an hour or more from Algonquin.

    Sorry, the wife feeds most days and she forgot to tell me that he's eating what we're feeding... Didn't find out until i fed today. I'm going to keep him for now.

    Could the mods please close? I'll start a new thread if i change my mind.

    Thanks, and sorry if i got your hopes up.
