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!
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.
