They do look funny though. Like those telescope goldfish. Which, by the way, I've always thought was a disaster waiting to happen. I mean, unless you keep the thing in a bare bottom tank, there are so many things those goldies could pop their eyes on.

Yes, which is why they tend to be kept in bare bottom tanks.
I told my dad we're getting an indoor pond for them and he said you won't be able to see them well. I think goldies look better from above. xD

LOL, that does make sense then. I feel bad for the ones whose eyes are so big they can't even lift them off the bottom of the tank.

Get an indoor pond and I'll send you my brat koi and comet. I NEVER see them.

Aw nuts. Maybe I can send them to Izzy. They're big enough now that they can hold their own with her babies. :)

I had to break mine down into three days. Small betta tanks on Saturday or Sunday, larger indoor tanks on Monday, garage tanks on Wednesday.

What was I thinking, getting so many tanks.

If she can still eat and swim and doesn't seem to be in major distress, I'd let her be. I'm almost certain it's a tumor but you could try General Cure just in case there are some parasitse inside her.

EDIT: Yup, which means even more tanks. :)
