Hello there. A couple of weeks ago I got my new goldfish, Hannibal Lecter. I rescued him from my LFS and he is currently in a 5g tank, soon to be a 30g. My dilemma is that before I bought him I made sure that if I was unable to get the 30g he would still have a home, with my aunt and uncle. Well, now I am getting the 30g (from my other aunt) and I will have it within three weeks now. My uncle has some mental problems, and when he heard that they were getting a new fish, he was really excited, and now is waiting for the fish to come. My fish. Which I can now keep. And we're probably moving this summer, so my mum doesn't even want me setting up the 30g.
My mother wants me to give Hannibal to my aunt and uncle (By the way, they have a MASSIVE goldfish tank. It is HUGE) and then wait to get the 30g until the summer, then get a 'new goldfish'. She seems to think he's just a fish to me, but I've come to love him :/ I don't know what to do, because few things actually excited my uncle now and actually make him really happy, but at the same time I don't know if I can bear to part with Hannibal. What do you guys think is best for him?
