Hey everyone I recently moved to a new town and haven't been able to explore much but one thing I did find (of course!) is that there are quite a few freshwater streams that run under the road I live on. So naturally I find any excuse to be near them as my babies are all at home. :'( well today on the way to the store I unsurprisingly looked down into the stream only to see a fish that didn't look like it belonged. Upon closer inspection I realized it was a goldfish, a black moor to be specific. A very cute black moor may I add
So, my problem is this, can he live in that water? I frequently see all kinds of trash in these streams in the few weeks I've been here and the water moves pretty swiftly in certain parts. Also although we're in a heat wave right now, we're quickly heading for winter and I really don't want him to freeze :/ so should I catch him and bring him into my apartment? I've read he'll need probably close to 20 gallons and it may take a while but I'm willing to find a tank for him instead of letting him die in that stream.
P.s. he can't have been in there long as I've never seen him before
Sorry for the run on sentences and the picture of a picture I didn't have my ipad with me when I saw him and I'm a terrible writer :/
