Still no fish!



I set up a QT tank over a week ago now, feeling like it was time to add a third fish to my tank...and I cannot find one!

I've been to five pet stores now and not a single one has anything but commons and fantails. It's like a fancy goldfish shortage or something! :rofl

I guess those were the big sellers for the summer with people stocking ponds, hopefully they'll get some other varieties in soon.

I did pick up a nice little apple snail that Jim named (get ready for it......) - Optimus Prime. Yes, my snail is a transformer. He is doing well, seems to be chowing down on all the algae that's accumulated since my BN pleco died a few months ago.

And on a hopeful note, we have an online bullitin board here at work and I see one of the biologists down the hall has 12 goldfish he's looking to rehome! I'm going to investiage, but I have the feeling they're big pond fish.

My LFS owner told me that right now goldfish are actually what he calls 'out of season'. xD

He said fall is the bigger time for goldfish.

I was also told last weekend that a lot of goldfish aren't ordered in the warmer months due to the heat :(

Good luck in your quest :)
