Good for you for being strong, Heidi! I find it hard to walk away from fish too, and I know I really don't have any more room.

In fact, I still think about this enormous oranda I saw a month ago at the LPS, stuck in with some tropicals.... :crying:

I feel your pain! I'm well PAST my limits! I just rescued a dog and I couldn't even keep him... I had to take him to my parents' house for the next year. And now I want a ranchu, a bubble-eye, a pearlscale...

I haven't been back to the shop because the conditions for the fish were really bad. The oranda had several red sores on its body, and none of the other goldfish tanks looked very healthy. The final straw was tank full of fantails with one floating dead with its stomach ripped open and entrails falling out. I just can't stand to go back because I can't rescue them all. :(

We have a couple of other branches of the same large pet chain nearby, and their fish conditions are much better. It just seems to be that one store.

I live near the Big Al's in south Florida, and last time I was there I saw they replaced half their goldfish tanks with reptiles! I couldn't believe it, they have no selection now. And I'm in the market for some new Ranchus

Teknosys, I was there this weekend. They had 4 tanks. And among them they only had 2 ranchu ( both were black\gold\choco color ) of which one was floaty and beginning to pinecone and the other at first looked fine initially, but after the 17 hour drive home he was infested with fish lice in the bag.

Called them up to alert them of the problem, and they assured me that the fish got it from somewhere other than them. :-p

Was pretty sad for me and my fiancee. Only reason we drove instead of flying was to get some ranchu. I guess I am going to have to call all the fish stores in the DFW area again until some pop up.

Not at all! I'm still so obsessed with calico orandas that it's boardering on creepy. I'm so happy that I have a 50 gallon now, as soon as it's set up and running nicely I'm going to get one and then honestly stay out of the goldie deparment. I can't take looking at them anymore, they are just all so pretty and needy!!! :heart
