One of the basic conditions for responsible animal husbandry is that we take care of the animal we take for the rest of our life, whatever the species.
Our lives may change and conditions that were previously appropriate for animal husbandry may change. Even in a situation like this, we want the best for our animals and either move everything to take care of the animal and ultimately look for a new and good owner for it.
Release in the wild can in most cases even be considered a death sentence for the animal. And if you can stay free, it could easily be dangerous for the native species that live there.
Goldfish don't seem too dangerous. Moreover, according to the tale, they even fulfill our wishes. However, when it turns out that this is not the case and you get bored of cleaning your aquarium, it seems like a good idea to let it out. It's just a goldfish.
But - and here comes what many don’t even think - letting go into the wild, these pious fish show off the protein of their teeth. Indigenous fish are pushed out of their original habitat, devoured by other fish, able to grow huge and even degrade water quality.
