Hi guys! Sorry if this belongs in a different forum section, but I wasn't sure. Anyway, my family is moving this summer and we'd really like to see our fish go to a good home with a lot of fish experience rather than get passed down to whoever moves in. I have about 10 comet goldfish ranging from 1" to about 10". Most are probably about 8". I have 2 BIG koi that are probably both about 2+ feet and pure white. I'm in Northern New Jersey. If you want them but aren't sure about transport, I could bring them to you or ship them or whatever. I'd like to make it as convenient for you as possible because I really just want to see them go to a good, knowledgable home. Thanks y'all!

@Angel Thanks for the response! Keep me updated on whether or not you have room/are interested. I'd love for them to go to you.

@Angel and @Jenny Hey it says it's only 170 miles from S to N New Jersey. Maybe you could meet in the middle?

@j.w @Angel If you find you have room, I'd be happy to drive them all the way. The most important thing to me is just that I find them a good home, so I'm very willing to drive them.

@Jenny Wow very nice of you and maybe @Angel will take you up on that offer! White koi are so pretty and show up nicely in a pond.

I have room, would you drive all the way to MI? :D
I really hope you find good home for all of your fish!

how much room do you think two koi will need? I currently only have GF, I may also ask my neighbor who exclusively raises koi

2' imho a good deal but not an expert. but i have about 40 fish in my pond and no time to widen the deep section to allow a 2' koi to turn around.

I am building a large pond but it will be July before the pond is even close to ready for two 24" koi though I question if they would do any impact to the system this large at all. If you do not find a home by that time Let me know.
