Fish Exchange

I need help.


First time owner of a pond with common goldfish. Bought our house in December 2017 so when spring sprang, I had about nine little gold fish. They grew and reproduced to the amount of one large solid gold (bright orange) appx 6-7 inches long (I include their tails). Next there are appx 6 varying colors of light to deep orange btw 5-6 inches. From there it's a free for all. I would guess four dozen smaller size to include 4 white and orange appx 2-3 inches long with the rest being smaller than two inches. and they keep coming!

I do not think my pond is big enough to keep them all safe through the winter and would like to give anyone who has the room some fish. Anyone interested?


Do you still have fish you want to rehome

Not at this time. I lost quit a few of my larger fish late in the fall season. Once spring comes around and I can see what I have then yes I will probably rehome some of my fish.

Having goldfih the size of a size 7 shoe, many simple things, that can keep it clean & your fish healthy. Keep fish out during winter. They'll hug the bottom of the pond. Feed them small amount of food. We have a net over our pond to keep critters, leave & branches out (and our own dog & cats). You Tube will give you a "Great" Pumping system (garbage cans, buffer pads and PVC piping) and a "hardy" pump (don't go cheap or $$$$). Lastly, buffer pads in barrels, clean once a week during summer (once a month during winter). Lastly. Figure out how many gallions go in to your pond (we bought a gallon counter), and use Hydrogen Peroide, for keeping it clean\ clear & fish healthy (Pinterest gave me the ratio). It is a lillte work to set it up, but as long as your consistant, it will last forever.
