I contacted the rescue group in Florida and a couple others. No one has contacted me about needing any rescue homes. I keep checking back too.
Where are all these "tons" of RES that need homes? I only have two right now and know they are happy in groups, so I wanted to get a few more for the new habitat.

pond is six feet deep with two 4inch bottom drains from gene,a no niche skimmer,and two mid water drains.bottom drains go to two separate vortex SC ,then to separate pre filters where water is pumped by one third horse power artesian to three three hundred gallon gravel and sand filters.skimmer and mid water drains feed a pre filter with matala,thenwater is pumped to an aquabead 6.0 and returns via two tpr's and a trickle tower on the side of pond.this pump is also one third horse power.i also have a large zapp pure uv plumbed into the mid drain circuit but have not turned it on yet.water is crystal clear .i also have two AV 50 air pumps that supply air via sunken hose and feed two rings i purchased from gene. they sit on two large rocks on the bottom of the pond.

Last I heard this place had a lot of sliders.
Many places will not ship when temperatures get too cold.
