I'm Sure There Are A Few I'll Keep For My Own Herd

One Tank, One Trip, 333 Goldfish

The Bonar Box, an insulated shipping box with a clamp down lid from the seafood industry.

The fish compound where I picked them up.  No raccoons or herons!

Green water does wonders for their color.

Loading into the box for the trip.

The loaded box with cloramX and pure oxygen trickling from an airstone.

Back home.

Pulling the few shubunkins out.

The landing pad.  They were sorted into Shunbunkins/mattes, Sarassas, Large gold, Medium gold and Small Gold.
