Hi there. I am not sure if this is even in the wright section but came to this forum to get some help from fish keepers with some experience. Due to some circumstances I will be leaving the country in 2 months and am trying to find a home for some fancy goldfish I purchased from Raingarden goldfish in Hawaii. These fish are absolutely stunning and amazing. I did not see a place to sell on this forum so am asking what the right way to go about this would be? I also saw some listings on the site for local clubs by state. I am in Michigan. Is it worth reaching out to the pond and koi clubs to re-home my fish? Any advice welcome. The fish were super expensive and ideally would like to sell them but if I can't manage that, safe re-homing is my priority. I care for them a lot. I have: 1 Ryukin. Female. 6+inches 1 Veiltail (pure, no tail split) Male. 4+inches 1 Ribbontail. Male. 4+inches 1 Fantail. Stunning black and White. Male. 3+ inches 1 petsmart rescue. also needs a home. had her for 6 years. pure white. sweet obviously not the same quality as others. 3 golden dojos. need home too. about 4-5 inches. only fish I would keep with goldies. These guys are a blast. so much fun. 1 nerite snail if you'll have him. He is like 3+ years old. Didn't even know they lived that long... They are currently in a 120g tank with sump. I am trying to get the whole system sold too. Looking for advice on how to proceed. Thanks for your patience with this rushed post. I really like this forum and hope I can find a good direction to go in with my problem.
I need you guys to talk me out of this. I've entertained the idea of getting a shipped fish before and the reality is just a crashing no. I KNOW it's a no. But I still find myself wanting to send steve an email 'just to make sure' So before I make a fool out of myself, I told myself I have to read EVERY STEVE ARTICLE! If that doesn't burn me out then I need you guys who have the common sense gene cause I'm lacking one. I want raingarden, seems the most experienced shipper though I"m not too sure about internationally. I'm in canada, the middle of canada, right above north dakota. My nearest airport is 4 hrs away and from what I remember international shippers like FEDEX do not deliver to this area, just the big city (an hr away) I have entertained the theory of getting shipped fry before from a breeder in montreal, he soon lost interest in helping me out I guess a breeder that deals with breeders. My theory is fry ship better. This would be a project for spring for the basement set up I currently have. I get free reign to build a new and better (stronger) pond next year cause our current one is getting a building on top of it. So I can go bigger, more fish. This is a horribly stupid IDEA. I'm just worried about my wisdom teeth removal and am reaching for strings on hopeful projects to occupy my thoughts, I'm applying for jobs, repotting plants, fussing over the stocking limits, looking at simon G jewellery.... Someone talk me out of this please!
