    Do they health check these fish before putting them all together?

    it’s amazing to see the size they should be !!!! Not the tiny fish that live in a bowl

    I saw your goldfish post and it reminded me of this video I saw a few days ago and it made me really happy. Thought it would make you happy, too 😊 Wish Fort Fisher would do this.

    Poachers, animal right activists, Trump, greenhouse gas pollution (climate change), deforestation, the palm oil industry, toxic waste pollution, plastic pollution, and overfishing. There are a number of things going on right now affecting animals/wildlife and we have an obligation to protect and preserve what’s left for our future. We’re altering a natural course that is known from studies in natural history, and if we don’t take action now there will be nothing left but a man made catastrophe. *Video 1 8/26/16 https://www.facebook.com/ryan.watkins.92/videos/10154468433352162/ *Video 2 11/2/17 https://www.facebook.com/ryan.watkins.92/videos/10155829021172162/ Please watch and share!

    Pleeeease.... tell people NOT to knock, even gently, on the sides of the aquarium. The water transfers the soundwaves into the equivalent of shock waves that upset the fish, and can in some cases, kill them. No matter how tempting...DO NOT KNOCK ON THE SIDES!!

    My mom had two gorgeous veiled fin goldfish that she took care of very well! They were very beautiful! She got older & couldn't care for them the way she wanted to! She called a few pet shops that said they weren't interested! ( if they had seen their size & BEAUTY they would have wanted them)! This place would have been perfect for my mom's gorgeous fish! GREAT idea! 💕
