pond bred goldfish

Postby mursh on 16 Nov 2018 01:02

Hi my parents pond has 40+ goldfish bred from 2 origional fish over the last 10 yrs.
the pond is pretty much at capacity now so i'm looking for advice as to how to sell 30+ of the fish.
They vary from 2.5inch to 6/7inch.
do i need to register as a seller/have the pond water tested?
any information/help is appreciated
Thanks in advance

You will find it hard to sell goldfish. Your best bet would be to approach a pet shop and see if they'll take them. You may get some credit if that's any use to you, but doubt if you'll get cash.

It's also not a good time to be moving fish to or from a pond. They are in semi hibernation at this stage and major change in temperature can be fatal.

You're better off leaving them until Spring when it will be easier to move them and there may be more demand.
