    About 4" size.

    I have this guy for a few months, eat like a pig, nice and fat BUT he is a ich magnet. Every other week or so he would break out ich and it is very stressful for me to watch so we decided that he gotta go.

    So again:
    This guy has ICH - you will need to QT/treat
    And he is a little beat up from me catching him. I had to literally grab him by the tail and pull him out of his hiding hole.

    He is in a 5g bucket with airstone and heater right now so need to be picked up ASAP.

    Ping me if you are interested.

    That's too bad you've had so much trouble with him.

    Yeah we like him a lot. He adds a lot of color and movement to the tank. But too much drama with the ich. I'm constantly worry that he will be the ich factory and wipe out my other fishes.
