My New Rescued Goldfish! (Pictures)

I haven't posted in a LONG time - I'm back. I recently "rescued" two large goldfish - about 6" long each. They were abandoned in a backyard pond at a foreclosed house. The pond was disgustingly filthy so we fished them out and now they are (temporarily) in my 30g aquarium.

They are a welcome addition to our family.

Here are a couple selections - more in the gallery if you're interested:

55gal: 5x Angelfish, 1x Common Pleco, 8x SIlver Tip Tetras, 16x Neon Tetras, 8x Albino Corys

Your tank looks like such a refreshing, clean, peaceful place for them to regroup. God bless you for saving these poor little creatures. Now... Will you be buying a 150 gallon tank for them to grow up in? Goldfish can, as you know get very very large. I think it would be kind of fun to have a huge tank and save a few feeder fish and let them grow as big as they get in a healthy safe environment. :)

Thanks! Yes - either a larger tank or a pond in the back yard. Not sure yet.
