  • Hi! I'm new to this group, but I have two goldfish that I rescued from an old roommate's house, where they were being kept in plant vases. I don't have the space to keep them in a tank appropriate for their size, so I'd like to find them a good home. I believe they're common goldfish - one is about 3 inches long (all orange), and the other is about 7 or 8 inches long (mostly white). I'm in the Silver Spring area and am happy to meet up to hand them off!
  • Posting this for a friend in Northwest DC. For sale: 135 gallon tank with (6' by 1.5' by two') custom wooden stand, overflow box, 20 gallons long tank that was about to be converted into a sump. Tank has some cracking along the top brace, as shown in one of the pictures, but the tank held water just fine. The tank has not had any water in it for several years, because the owner was away. Everything for $150. You must pick up, but the owner can help carry things out to your car or truck. If you're interested, send me a private message (Members Chat in the lower right corner) and I'll give you the owner's email address. Matt
  • Is anyone raising white worms? Pick up at the December Holiday Party would be ideal, but otherwise I can swing by someone's house.
