Brainsponge Posted November 22, 2022 Share Posted November 22, 2022 So I ended up rescuing/inheiriting 3 monster Goldfish(Comet I think) and a 12-14"ish Pleco(maybe sailfin). The family member could no longer take care of them due to medical issues and was at a loss on what to do with them so I said I'd come get them and give them a good home. All I was told when I agreed to take them was they were 3 goldfish and an algae eater. Needless to say I was completely surprised to see the massive size of these fish. Long story only slightly longer, I need to get them separated and in their own larger tanks. From what I've read the Pleco(Charlie) needs a 100gal min and the Goldfish should probably be in a pond but a larger tank would work in the interim. I can build the Goldfish a pond when it gets a bit warmer but I was hoping for a quicker, if only temporary solution to give them a better quality of life. They are currently in a 45gal bowfront. I keep up on maintenance, water parameters are stable, when Nitrates get to 40-50 I water change as I've recently added some Java fern and Anubias to try to help and they are doing great, just slow growers. Have a HOB, and two sponge filters that do a good job. So now that this turned into a novel let me get to the point. I am in need of a 60gal breeder at minimum but I'm really looking for a 75-125gal. My nearest LFS is about 3hrs out. I haven't been able to find a local forum to buy used tanks on. Craigslist is pretty sketchy and not alot of options. Any suggestions on regional(NW Fl) forums, clubs, online retailers for larger tanks? I don't do facebook or instagram. I'm not independently wealthy for the custom tank shipped avenue. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I was hoping with black friday approaching I might have some options for a new/used tank somewhere online but I seem to be coming up empty.
