... No, really! I'd LOVE for these guys to wiggle in your aquarium or pond: My ryukins spawned early late January (much to my surprise) and I've spent the better part of this year in a crash course on raising fry. 92 fry to be exact (56 from the first spawn, 27 from the second spawn, and 9 from the third... sheesh they were busy). Although it's been a bit of a whirlwind for me, I've really enjoyed every part of raising these guys... even the water changes. Soooooo many water changes. I've grown quite attached and as much as I would love to keep each and every one of them, there is sadly not enough room for me to do so. Which brings me to the purpose of this post: Anyone want to adopt some ryukin juvies?! Right now I have 66 that I need to re-home. That's a lot of ryukin cuteness! The kokomunity is my first choice for re-homing these guys. I won't even let my friends or family pick any until you guys have had the opportunity to adopt first. You have dibs if you want them. They are about 6 months old. Their diet was live baby brine shrimp, after about a month I added in Repashy Soilent Green into the mix. A little over a month ago I transitioned them all to NLS 0.5mm pellets. I'm located in California in the San Francisco - East Bay area. If anyone is local and looking for a new addition, I'm happy to work have you come over, come to you, or schedule a meet-up half-way(ish). I'm also open to shipping. I've never shipped a fish before, but have received shipped fish. I think so long as they are packed properly, I'd feel comfortable shipping them. I would still need to research options, packing materials, and costs. Speaking of cost... these guys are FREE I would only ask for reimbursement on shipping (if shipping is needed). Here are some pics of goldies: And these are the parents: Mama Papa There is one catch! If you end up adopting, you can expect me to occasionally bother you for updates and pics
I have two goldfish, Miles and Wally, that are looking for a home. Since everyone on this forum is extremely knowledgable and obviously cares a great deal about the welfare of goldfish, I thought this would be a good place to start a search for a potential new parent or parents. I bought these goldfish from Nature Aquarium in Santa Monica, CA in March of 2010. Miles, the larger of the two, currently lives by himself in a 40-gallon tank with an air pump, a Fluval 306 canister filter and a Whisper EX45 HOB filter. Wally, the smaller of the two, is in a 20-gallon tank with 2 Whisper EX45 HOB Filters. I separated them about a year ago because I found that Miles was getting to all the food before Wally could, given Wally's inability to swim as fast. Miles seems to be in great health, though I sometimes will enter the room to find him hanging out on the bottom of the tank. Once he sees me, he's usually up and about for long periods of time. Wally seems to be in pretty good health, but occasionally has swim bladder issues (usually peas do the trick to right him), and he has a growth on his head which does not seem to be parasitic in nature, or a hindrance to his health, beyond looking odd. I'd love to find a great new home for Miles and Wally in the Southern California area. If you are interested in hearing more, please reply to this post. Photos to come. Thanks for your time, Patrick
