Rehoming my goldfish UK

6 posts in this topic

Hi everyone!

 

Apologies I've been a bit AWOL over the last 18 months, it's been a bit of a busy one.

 
In a nutshell we've recently bought a Narrowboat to live on (I know, I think we've gone mad), and so sadly this means we can no longer keep our beloved goldies. This is a shame because I've finally got my dream tank, a 6ft 400l rimless aquarium with aubergine coloured cabinet, but there's no way this can go on a narrowboat so sadly it will have to go.
Even more sadly is that I'll have to rehome the fish - since I've moved to this area about 18 months ago I've had major problems with the water (big pH swings) and as a result I've lost a few fish and have a couple who now have significant buoyancy problems. The only two fish that are unaffected are Matcha, my lovely calico oranda who I've had for around 3 yrs, and Stephen the Fry, an orange single tail who is Matchas fry (although he's about 2 yrs old now so he's not exactly a fry anymore!). This is a long shot but I don't want to rehome them to just anyone and was wondering if any of you Kokonuts with enough tank space and experience would be willing to take them on? Dependent on distance I'd deliver them to your house along with food etc.. Matcha spawns every 2-4 wks so would be ideal for breeding. Something important to note is that they did have what looked suspicious of ich a few months back after the introduction of a new fish (which I quarantined for 4 wks with no apparent problems!), I treated the whole tank but I'd still recommend quarantining them before introducing them to any of your fish. They're up to date with fluke treatment. 
 
Please let me know if you're interested or you know of anyone who would be. I'll upload some photos shortly.

Hi Kate. Good luck with rehoming your Goldies. Enjoy your boat.

I had to look up "narrowboat."  I certainly can't see any way you could keep an aquarium in a 6-7 foot wide "house."  It sounds like an adventure to live in a boat.

Pictures might help. Sorry you have to rehome them.

Good luck with the rehoming. I'm sorry your living situation is incompatible with a big tank :(
