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!

where do you live?

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).

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