It was a Goldie from a.........WEDDING! I'm always the oddball, not a fair or carnival, a wedding. Goldfish were put in tiny 1 cup (yes, ONE literal MEASUREMENT OF WATER CUP) and there were a lot of not so happy parents taking goldfish home home that day, since there was a big announcement saying they were giveing away the goldfish after the wedding. I didn't go, my mom brought it home. He was quickly out inba one gallon tank bowl, but I broke it by accident and upgraded to a 5 gallon Walmart kit, and bought some "friends". A rather large catfish (which went back after a couple days), some neons a Otto and a zebra danio. The Goldie died after 6 months and the rest lived a year. I upgraded to a 20 at that time, and got me a basic edgumacation on fish from AA. Now I've got my 45 long, and I'm a Nazi about good cleanliness in the tank now.
