Pics from this past winter: First pic is a large juvenile moor (orange-size) next to an adult male moor. The next two pics are the same juvenile moor next to an adult male moor nymph. The pics do not do justice to the size of the adult moors as they were larger than a dinner plate.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss, that is heartbreaking.

Thank you! Perhaps the efforts of making these pics will pay off in helping people decide a better way to house their fish.

We still need a pic for Comets/Feeder fish. I have already referenced this thread to several people!

Great thread!

Now that it's been stickied, I wonder if the title can be edited to read: View this before buying your first goldfish.

I thought a funny thing to say about the one inch per gallon rule...
A 66 inch adult female (my height) can live in a 66 gallon tank... which we all know is complete crap hahaha

Big pet store near me is having a sale- 6 comets for $9. Brilliant :-(
Shop assistant said its cheaper for customers to buy the 6 than to buy 3, so they get the cheap deal and flush the unwanted fish. And knowing this, they continue to offer those deals!
I don't know whether I feel more sorry for the ones that get flushed or the ones that end up in an uncycled 20 gal tank.

Isn't that the truth? I just replied to that thread.
