    The day after the 2013 New York State Fair my then-housemate, who worked at the Fairgrounds, found "leftover" prize goldfish thrown into a trash can. He brought home the ones that were still alive. I am an experienced dog and cat rescuer, but had not planned to take in fish. Thus began my learning experience. The fish spent their first night here in a 4-gallon bucket, graduated to a donated 20 gallon aquarium the next day, moved through a series of progressively larger used tanks I got on Craigslist, and in October 2016 I set up a 400 gallon pool in the basement as an indoor pond for them.
