Basically, yes. Tosakin look like lower-quality ryukin from the side which is why you don't see many if any tosakin in a typical aquarium.

I don't currently have any tosakin, but if I ever become that rich I'd like to have them in a pond one day.

I really like the way comets look. But I don't like the idea of keeping an animal outside (except a horse or farm animal I guess) and I don't want more than a 55 gallon tank. So someday I'm gonna get fantails lol

Same here :X I spend more time inside so I like keeping my fishies in an aquarium.

But if I could like... get this stupid room cleaned up so I can have my desk near the window I might consider putting a pond outside the window so I can watch them.

Yeah I mean a pond might be cool, but I just don't trust raccoon's. Last time I had a goldfish pond (at my parents house) about 20+ fish disappeared over night. I would have an indoor pond for some Koi if I could. I think it would be really neat to have a very large pet fish. That being said, I think it's amazing to have such a small (and intelligent!) pet fish: my betta!

Our neighbors cat, raccoons, possums, other stray cats, birds >.< I'd have constant anxiety. I would love to do an indoor one someday. Or just a giant tank would be awesome.

If you had enough money some places will do most of the work for you and (as they say) all you do is feed the fish.

The pond? No, it didn't have any protection. Unfortunately we didn't know much about ponds or fish keeping at the time. Though raccoons are very crafty, and I don't trust them not to try and break a barrier for some fish snacks.
