goldfish are mating!
we don't have anywhere near enough space to accomodate a spawn of goldfish, but two of our goldies (just became old enough to see their cheek stars) started chasing a third around, sniffing her butt and nudging her all around the tank. i just looked it up and it's definitely a mating ritual going on in there. if they do spawn, is it a fairly good shot that six piggy goldfish will just end up eating the eggs, or should we get on the horn with LFS's to see if any of them will take some newborn fry? the female is a ryukin and the two males are both fantails, i don't know if that matters any at all.
So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.
