Wow... Well yeah I know a guy who had a goldfish in a bowl. Lived 10 years - although it was always sick...

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

lol, you trying to 1up me ? thats quite a story given the goldie was in a bowl and probably had no airpump in that bowl. im just surprised they can live that long in such conditions without certain equipement. the one in the 10g did suffer from growth stunting 4-5 inches long total with fins.

Ooo poor fishy.. Well, I was shocked too. That goldie was hardy! Most goldfish I see bought for small spaces (under 5 gallons) die between 15 minutes and 1 week...

Well I find it unlucky o_o because that means the jumpers absolutely positively need cover x.x lol!! As amusing as it is... there's something even better...

Tina will slap herself against the side of the tank (out of the water) to get my attention. All I can hear in my head as she slaps against the side, and slides down, is "SLAP!!! eeeee....bloop! SLAP!!! eeeee... bloop!" xDD

I think I get laughed at a lot. I am seen as some sort of nerd and I am a working adult. I am seen as not cool because I go straight home to see my pets instead of clubbing and drinking. I don't really care what others think anymore. I don't like to drink anyways and I don't like crowded places.

I respect every living thing in this world from birds to fish to dogs, guinea pigs, rabbits, rat, spiders, earthworms you name it except for maybe mosquitoes; can't stand mosquitoes when they bite.
