Small fish growth rate is always fastest, from a tiny fries to 3" probably takes 2~2.5mths. Once hit 3-4 inches, the growth slow down. Not every goldfish grow the same rate.

If really talking about growth rate, it's not just length increase. This fish improve in mass. From a almost dying fish in lfs, get it up to health and grow it within a short 4 mths is no laughing matter. Noone will take such a risk to buy a dying fish, worst of all a risk of buying a stunt fish. 4 mths ago, the price for such a fish should be around 60-100 bucks. Will you do that ?

The growth bring back the fish to better proportion. In fact, the shape is very good. Wen growth, body mass and tail structure improvement are in control. Since this should be a lionchu, there are much more growth potential in it. I guess we do agree on the untidy scaling and the rounding at the penduncle. Looking at the before and after pictures, there are improvement.

In term of overall, this is still a good specimen. And the owner has done a great deal.

There are more than just dumping a fish in a large water vol.
