Swapped my 585 for a Goldfish!

I can't believe my luck! I've just swapped my 585 for a Goldfish! I can't wait to get her in the water later today!

I'll post a pic later

You want to get in the water ASAP - they don't like drying out! Use clean water, but not tap water

The guy was the second owner, he's kept ever receipt to show the running costs and it's a fraction of what I was thinking
