Here's a picture of one of my goldfish with my hand as a size reference. It really is this big! I have a calico one in the tank also, but that one is a little camera-shy. I got these goldfish at Wal-Mart about 2 and 1/2 years ago for less than $2 each. There were maybe 2 inches long when I brought them home and put them in the pond. I'm impressed with how much they've grown and how long-lived they have been. I sure enjoy watching them.
My friend Squirrel finally brought me some girl guppies today. He's been talking about it for a couple months, but he finally fished some out of his tank last night before heading up to the fish show in Minneapolis this weekend.
Here are the 3 new girls in their plastic bag getting acclimated to my tank. See the boy guppies in front checking them out and showing off for them?
This is going to be interesting. Squirrel says guppies are prolific breeders so I wonder how long it will be before my first baby guppies appear and how much time it will take for this small tank to be overrun with guppies of all sizes.
