hi all!

thanks for your comments! the fish is about 10cm from mouth to tail. i bought it one year ago when he/she was 3.5cm long. it was sold as a feeder fish for 0.75€.

the problem here is:very few people do serious goldfish-keeping here. goldfish are thought to be fish for beginners, for children. they have to live their (mostly very short) lifes in too small tanks or goldfishbowles, often without any filter or even plants. i try to do better! but under this circumstances it is not easy to get a real high-quality goldfish. and almost noone here would pay more than 5€ for a goldfish (my most expensive one is a black moor for which i paid 17€ - one of the best fish i have ever seen in reality <-- i was not in asia yet). another thing is, that most aquarists here keep tropical fish which of course look more "natural". so many people think fancy goldfish are poor individuals, because they look too exotic, too freaky. they think goldfish suffer because of their tails, their eyes, their wen, their gills... whatever. i don't think so. i don't like these narrow-minded people. i think that they should watch them first and than make a decision if goldfish are good or bad... i have made mine biggrin2.gif

regards

david
