Unbelievable goldfish
 
Foot long black Moore goldfish it very well taken care of from the looks of it!.

Made me want to get a tank just for him. Absolutely stunning.

Wow! Look at him. He's gorgeous! Puts my little fella to shame. :)

Beautiful fish!! WOW!!

I know I always pictured goldfish as ugly and deformed this changes my whole aspect of these guys.

I didn't know that moores could get that big! Very pretty though.

Wow...never seen a goldfish like this!

Do you know where they got it?

There are two likely possibilities:
1-It came from someone's tank who had it forever or
2-It is a used up breeder from a fish farm, common this time of year.

1. I asked and usually they don't carry such old fish.

I know it was spectacular I don't think it'll last.

On a side note I have a friend that a friend...lol. He says she has 7 or 8 goldfish around this size probably smaller.. I hope in a 10g or 20g she's had them since they were small. I wish I could go slap her but she's in Chicago and I'm in Tn. I just can't see how this is possible ... Is it???

I don't think there is literally that much room in a 10 they might actually fit in a 20, doubt they could swim and the bioload would be astronomical... I just don't think they would ever be able to survive. There has to be some exaggeration somewhere. Id feel bad for 2 goldfish In those size tanks.

Well I give you that it might be a 20g I hope but it was 7-8 fish I just dont see how it's possible I've been begging him for pics I will update!!!

Bully405Customz 12-20-2011 02:17 AM

Yeah let us know. Im in a similar situation here, my friend has I believe a 36 g hex with an Acei, 2 arautus, zebra, common pleco 6" and one more I couldn't id all FULL GROWN. I don't know how they haven't ripped each other apart. I've been trying to buy them or anything. Plus he has a 20 g long with a full grown angel fish, irridecent(sp?) Shark 6" and some other stuff. It hurts me, so I don't go over there anymore.

bruinsbro1997 12-20-2011 02:23 AM

Bully405Customz 12-20-2011 02:26 AM
