Rehoming Goldfish

Hi everyone,

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I would like to rehome my goldfish and dojo loaches. I have two of each. Early this year my kidneys failed due to lupus and I was required to go on dialysis. I have tried to keep up with the weekly maintenace on my 40 gallon breeder (with a 30 gallon sump) but have had difficulty keeping the tank clean. My huge goldfish ae very messy. Three weeks ago my sump plumbing failed and I had to remove it. I only have a 70 gallon canister fikter on it now. The cleanup is now a nightmare. The water conditons of my tank have deteriorated so much. I can tell that my fish are suffering.

One of my goldfish is a black oranda. He is about 3.5 years old. His wen hasnt fully grown. Not sure if I stunted his growth. He would do well in a indoor tank.

My other goldfish is a single tail calico shubukin. He is about 5 years old.

The dojo loaches are just regular golden dojos.

I will appreciate any advice I can get and hope I can find them a good home.

I will post pictures when I get home.

Thank you, Clueless. I am trying to take it one day at a time. I have a few potential kidney donors that are currently being tested so there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Gotta keep swimming!!
