  Fancy goldfish available (and common goldfish, if wanted)

Description: Due to having sold our large aquarium, we have x7 fancy goldfish that need re-homing.

We have:
x2 chocolate orandas
x1 orange and white oranda
x1 panda moor
x1 orange pearlscale
x1 black (pewter) ranchu
x1 white ranchu

NOTE - these were what they were sold to us as. However now 2-3 years old and fully grown (I think!) I'm not sure. None of the orandas seem to have hoods, and might be fantails, but with beautiful large tails. The panda moor has slowly lost all it's black and developed some orange as well as white.

These are all beautiful and loved fish, and seem very hardy for fancy goldfish.

We would rather they all were rehomed together if possible but if not the main thing is that they have a large tank. These are large goldfish, some 3 inches in length before the tails also, and are used to having 450 litre surroundings.
They could go in a bit of a smaller tank if the common goldfish won't be going with them.
Note that when these guys were in a smaller tank (200 litres) they were smaller anyway, and there was also sometimes problems with chasing/mild aggression when it was obviously mating season - but since they've lived in the bigger tank for the last year or two, there has been no sign of mating at all.

The small print so you know exactly what to expect:
The pearlscale can sometimes (and it is only sometimes) sit at the top of the tank as is the way with pearlscales, who can struggle with their swimbladder - however she has never been sick, so I honestly don't think this is a problem for her. Also the black ranchu sometimes likes to rest at the bottom of tank, and has a little chunk out of his side, and the scales seem to have never grown back. The orange & white "oranda" has a little lump just before her tail starts, but it is harmless and she's had it for years - it is NOT a parasite.

The tank is at room temperature, and they're currently living with a lot of bristlenose ancistrus, who get on fine at room temperature (so much so they have bred) and also get on fine with the goldfish, if you want any.
Also we nurtured some common goldfish from fry, and x6 survived which are also living in this tank happily, there's no problems over food, etc - if you want these guys also.

Basically up for grabs - we don't want any money if they're going to a good home.

Any questions please call.
Also please note - you will need to bring your own transportation for the fish!
