If anyone is looking for a good new home for their big 1'-5' catfish, for whatever reason except for the fish's poor health and/or old age (say, he used to be little and cute but now outgrew your tank or your ability and/or desire to care properly for him, or he ate and keeps eating everybody else in your tank, etc.), I can be your answer. I have a 2500 gal indoor tropical pond in my basement (25' x 6' x 3'; right now split in 2 sections to keep some fish from hurting/eating each other), in addition to 5 tanks in the house, 150, 120, 55, 30 and 30 gal.
If you want to get rid of a large gar, eel, arowana, or e.g., arapaima, etc. that could desired too!
I guess I am targeting primarily Rochester NY, USA area and would be willing to drive say to places like Buffalo, Siracuse, Utica, Corning, Toronto, Erie, maybe even Cleveland to get a very nice fish, but if you think you can safely ship your fish to me and be willing to accept the payment after their arrival, then we could help each other out.
Pet shops would normally give you 1/3 of the retail value in store credit, only if the fish is in excellent health and form, and less, far less if there are imperfections. I think I could give you more AND in cash, AND I am less picky than your average fish store owner!
Thanks for considering!
