New members of the Benson Aquarium...

Post by Sbenson11 on Tue Dec 03, 2013 5:52 pm

Sometimes when people donate their refugee fish to me they come with some extra baggage. Sometimes it's a fish that I have no interest in or suitable tank to hold them in. Then sometimes people just want to be done with it all and give me whatever they have. I have ended up with all kinds of supplies and sometimes aquariums with all the fixens.

This past weekend I went to pick up six goldfish in need of a new home. When I got there she had them all bagged up and ready to go, along with all their worldly possessions. Shocked  there was everything from an air pump, all kinds of different food, tank cleaning supplies, nets and even a brand new testing kit. I noticed in the bag as she was giving me all this stuff that the filter inserts were there and I figured there was a tank somewhere. I'm pretty bad on times but I resisted the temptation to say "what about the tank" Shocked 

Hanging out in their quarantine tank.

Well stocked and well supplied. Those look like good size goldfish. What happened to the tank ? It is good of you to take them in. They will be well cared for.

It looks like you have at least 1 fancy there? The one in the middle that looks straight into the camera?

Very pretty... nice of you to rescue them. Little do they realize how lucky they are to have found the "Benson Aquarium" as their new home.

no fancies in there, that's a Bristol Shubunkin, they have a very exaggerated tail. This is a picture of another one i have.

oh my goodness I love them all!
they look big
they are so fortunate to have you!
6 lives saved and changed...
I wonder what kind of tank they had?!
I will have to loom the Bristol Shabunkin up...what a beautiful fish!
