So I've been trying to resist buying this little guy since I stocked up all of my 10g tanks, but I would go into the pet store every afternoon and see him sitting in his sad, sad lonely tank that was absolutely TINY. Today I decided was the day that I rescue little Hannibal! I have no clue if it's a girl or a boy, but I named it that the moment I saw it. My whole life I always wanted a Goldfish, but I always expected it to be, well, gold. Hannibal is a white, pinky colour. He will be living in a 5g for 5-6 weeks. That cannot be changed, and is better than the God awful tank he had been in. I still need to make a net for him...
So, here's my plan:
-See if my aunt will give me her 30g/ let me buy it off her
-If she won't, call my neighbour and ask to buy her 20g
-If all else fails, my great aunt has a MASSIVE tank for Goldfish and recently lost two and said she would take Hannibal (she has been caring for these Goldfish for over 20 years- I think she knows what she's doing :P)
-Make a net out of mesh for Hannibal
-Block off the sides of my 10g tanks so Themis and Artemis stop freaking out over the new guy
-Create a lid for the 5g (working on that right now, almost done)
-Redecorate the tank, the plants in there are too big
-Ask about the gender of fish
-Ask about what kind of Goldfish it is
What do you guys think? My whole childhood, it was always a dream of mine to get a small Goldfish and put it in a bowl beside my bed. But now I know better.
Here are some pics (Do you know if it's a boy or girl and what kind?) :
