Help with pricing a mated pair or clowns?

I have a mated pair of gold stripe misbar maroon clowns. They have been in my 20G reef and are very healthy and happy fish, they spend all of there time in my GBT and love it. My problem is the female is getting quite large very fast, they are only around a year and a few months old and it's amazing how fast they grow, so the story is there getting too big for a 20g. I would like to sell them and was wondering how much I couks reasonably ask for them, mated and misbar maroons. Very healthy too, I would appreciate any insight on this thank you.

They are not mated, they are bonded.

 

If it were me, I probably wouldn't sell them. However, if I had to, I'd sell them for what I paid for them.

Bigger tank!

 

If I had a budget that allowed a bigger tank than trust me I would be all over that option, but with a wife in nursing school and only one income the budget is tight so you can see my $$$$ dilemma on a bigger tank

If they are the only fish in the tank, I don't see a problem keeping them. If you have other fish and want to keep things small. By all means, sell them.

 

The reality is they are maroon clowns. Misbar, or not, they don't command a high price. I'd just sell them for what I paid for them.

How about a tank from petco? They are having their $1 per gallon sale right now.

 

I understand though, this hobby is expensive! (I'm in nursing school too) I'm not sure what they sell for :( You could always trade them too for some smaller fish.

True true, not a bad idea

 

I have a pearly jawfish, the best colored one that I've ever seen and is smaller than others and I don't want to part with him/her, then I have a very tiny small ruby red dragonet, I got and in the entire like almost year it hasn't grown bigger at all so it's like the same size of a yellow line cleaner goby and there's no way I'm parting with him but those are the only other fish

 

Thank you for all the suggestions I think I just might wait a bit and hold on to them and see what happens, if I can make the scroll I will go up 20 mor gallons for 40 long and maybe do it that way or maybe if I get a good offer from someone's who's a goo reef keeper than I will do that but all great advise and thanks
