Mori Only goldfish are still unadopted. They're exceptionally cuddly and cute, and no freaky wens or googly eyes. Take four home today!

Mori Dearborn (Detroitish) (Everyone in MI knows where Dearborn is, don't they?).

I have tentative homes for all but 4 of the big fish (whether goldfish or gouramis/plecos is yet to be determined).

Anyone want to adopt my fishies (or snail)?

I'm moving at the end of the month and need to find homes for my fish. They're family pets so I don't want to just dump them at a pet store. (I thought I was moving several months ago but didn't end up going, if this plea looks familiar.)

I'm willing to deliver these guys a few hours away from Detroit if needed. Critters requesting adoption:
1 very large gold female apple snail (P. canaliculata--not for planted tanks!)
2 adult "common plecos" (L. pardalis), 18-20" nose to tail (~14" without), compatible with fish species normally sucked by some plecos.
2 adult pink gouramis (Helostoma temminckii), 7-8" plus tail.
1 small adult angelfish, sort of a sunset blusher variety--white and gold.
1 longfinned zebra danio in his senior years who refuses to pass on like his peers have. (He'll fit in anywhere!)
4 fantail goldfish: 2 very attractive larger fish:5-6" plus tail (one male red and white, one female metallic bronze), 2 ~2" plus tail goofy-looking small orange and white ones (hopefully be much less goofy-looking when they get bigger).

If needed, I may be able to provide an old 75g tank (that has been sitting unused in my basement and hopefully hasn't developed a leak) that lacks a stand (unless you and a large friend want to come get my great aunt's old stereo cabinet which is what I used--I can't deliver that thing). I also have a malfunctioning Eheim 2217 that can probably be fixed by someone with more patience than I have.

So, if you have a place for any of these critters, let me know. Thanks!
