Oh I have a story for that one! My step-dad used to sneak bones to my dogs while I wasn't at home (school or work) and I would always find out and get angry about it. He used to say "but it's a insert whatever animal here bone and won't shard up!" i had then replied that it didn't matter, they could always swallow a piece just a little too large.

So of course something happened to my Chihuahua Kitty that proved me right. On my way home from school, I got a call from my step dad because something was wrong, there was something sticking out of her butt that she didn't want to be touched. It was too late in the day to bring her to her normal vet so I took her to an emergency vet (so expensive, and I don't get my employee discount that I had grown accustomed to). Sure enough it was a chunk of bone that the vet had to carefully remove and ever since Kitty doesn't like anything going near her butt. She doesn't even get her temperature taken at check-ups anymore.

What do you mean by your thread? Another myth Bettas can not be kept with other fish there is always the super aggressive or the incompatible species.P.S. stopping is a sign of admitting defeat.

Another myth is that rawhide is good for dogs. It has the same problems as bones...

No idea not a goldfish expert but out of the thousands of strains one theoretically will get that big full grow. P.S. I meant with lots of water changes.
