FREE TO GOOD HOME

Postby Mel J » Sun Jun 05, 2011 10:58 pm

There used to be this sticky on the old forum so we will try it again on here.

Please post any equipment / fish which are free to a good home .
When members have posted up "free" koi/fish before the emphasis has always been on a good home for the sometimes lesser quality koi or Goldfish etc which are no longer wanted . Please make sure if you take up any offers they do get a good home .

I have a few koi that have been in care & are now on the mend. looking to be rehomed, this is to make room for some other poorly koi that have come in and need the room.
A large female doitsu kin matsuba, around 75 cm. has a large wound in the gillplate. slow to heal but coming along.
A large female Hi Utsuri which had a large ulcer on its flank last year, again, slow to heal but mostly there now. around 70cm.
A Shiro around 50cm , has a wound on the bottom edge of the gill plate, needs a home & some tlc.
A mirror carp around 55cm , no issues , just needs a home.
I have around 10 small Shiro's (for sale), around 15cm , plus a few becko of the same size. good pond fillers.

south Manchester area , please PM me if interested.

APPEAL FOR HELP CONTENTS OF A POND OLD & YOUNG

Does anyone know of any Koi & Fish rescue places who could help by taking 60 plus Koi & goldfish from my late Dad's pond. We have managed for the last 5 years but the time has come for them to go it is proving very difficult for my Mum to manage. My Husband has & is looking after them & the pond but was taken ill at the weekend & it made us realise what a muddle we would be in if it had been more serious. Whoever wants the fish would need to take catch them humanly & transport them the same way. They are of no monetary value as not Japanese to us they are & have been still a bit of my Dad but sentiment aside we have to be practical.

We also have
3-4 Golden orfe around 10-12 inch
2-3 Blue orfe around 8 inch

We also have a few Rudd I believe.

All are free to a good home. I'm based in Ruislip Middlesex

Thanks
