My happy little pearlscale goldfish

Today I managed to get some nice shots of my other fish.
In my big tank, I have two pearlscale goldfish. They are the cutest, roundest little balls of fishiness. They make me think of messy little puppies...
They are still babies, only about an inch and a half long.




This is my son's fish - named, uncreatively, Shiro.


This is a bit of a rescue. She(?) got caught in a friend's filter pipe when she was a bit smaller... It tore a hole in her side, ripped her fins off on that side, and shredded her tail. I did a lot of nursing, and now Poyo only has a big smooth scar where the worst damage was.


Jumping for food!

Awww! They are adorable! And tiny! ^-^ I look at my goldies and can't even imagine them being that small once.

Thanks everyone.
I hope they don't get bigger too quickly - we can't afford a larger tank at the moment. Right now they seem almost comically small in their big 15g, but I know that won't last forever.

Goldfish do grow pretty fast - you are going to need to upgrade to a 30g ASAP.

Not quite that fast - they are a year old as it is, and their parents are 3 inches at 5 years. If they get bigger than that in the next year they will be heading off to pond land to join them. (We know the breeder.)

They are from very small fancy goldfish stock (comets or wakin they are not), so unless they outpace their parents, they should actually be fine in the 15 gallon for a while. They have the heavily filtered, monitored, and cleaned tank to themselves. I just hope they don't outgrow it before we have a pond as I would like to keep them.
