AKA: Should/can I give these fishies to a pet store so that they can possibly have a happier home?
BG: DD#2 has 3 goldfish that were given to her by exBF#2* as a prom invite. They were left at our door with a side-walk-chalk note "Of all the fishies in the sea, would you go to prom with me." How sweet! So, in the beginning, DD#2 was very diligent in taking care of these lovely fishies . . . /endBG.
DD#2 has owned the fish for 4 years now. They have grown to be about 4-inches long each, seem to be happyish enough by moving around a lot (I think they do need a larger tank plus a much more loving owner) but it's come to the point where I have to nag her to death about cleaning the tank or I do it myself. I did not sign up for this!
While DD#2 feeds them every day, she told me that her heart isn't into them any more because they remind her of BF#2.
So, how do you go about re-homing goldfish?
*If anybody remembers, exBF#2 is the guy that set off my hinky meter and was also a probable theft suspect, it's been more than 2 years since they broke up and the caring of the fishies has been a very slow decline.
