About a year ago i built a small pond with 5 goldfish inside.

Apparently they really liked it because they started reproducing a lot and now there are more than 15 and i'm guessing that the space they have is starting to get a bit cramped. I'm also positive that they will not stop coming anytime soon.

Is there a good and reliable way to give them away (for free). I tried online but so far only one person got 2 fishes.

Should i try pet stores? Also IIRC releasing them into the wild is not a good idea and can get you big fines.

If it's helpful i live in italy.

    Please see this related question. The fines are there to protect fragile ecosystems against those cute little goldfish that grow into malicious feeding monsters.

    Yeah, knew about that. That's why i thought it wasn't a good idea. I once went fishing in a lake and caught a goldfish that was twice the size of any other fishes
