I'm moving apartments and I have an aquarium of fish I am growing to hate.

I have had the fish for 3 years, the last year and a half I have not enojyed them. At all. I do not want to move with them, partly because moving my large aquarium (~12 gallons) is a real hassle (I did it before, so I know), but mostly because I am no longer interested in owning fish. None of my friends are willing to take the aquarium, and as yet my daily glarings and wishing ill upon hasn't caused them to do the right thing and just die already so I'm stuck with these stupid fish I hate that, swear to god, are spiting me by living for so damned long.
Now, as much as I hate and resent these fish, I am not totally heartless and cruel. It isn't their fault that I don't want them anymore, so just murdering them/flushing them/accidentily leaving the lid open all day so that my cat can eat them seems screwed up and inhumane.
I want to know of suggestions for how to rid myself of them prior to the move. What do people do when they can't/would prefer not to own a large aquarium any longer?
