This is my new goldfish yet to be named, who I won at the fair.

^-^ He's cute! And tiny! He looks happy to be in a real tank and not a bag. What size tank is he in? As far as names, I'm clueless. I'm terrible at these things.

He is in my 29 for the time being. My friend is putting him in her pond when he outgrows it. :)

That sounds like a great plan. This little guy is so luck to be rescued. You should take pictures of him every month just to see (and show the world) how much he grows.

Hey! What about Lucky as a name?

I might do that. The sorority is leaving him alone which I am surprised about since they like to chase the mollies

What a cute Goldy. :) I agree with Lucky as a name, it fits well.

Sorority? As in Bettas? @-@ Goldfish are better of in cold water as they'll produce even more ammonia than in cold water. Metabolism reasons... And they produce tons of ammonia already in a cold water tank. D:

I have the heater at 75 so they both can bee comfortable. He is an active little guy and is oblivious to them and my friend agreed to take him in a few months so he will have a nice koi pond with other goldfish and koi

What a cutie pie!

Shouldn't be prizes though. Most of them will end up in the trash.

I feel so sad because they were won for little kids and I doubt people will look up their needs.

He can actually be at temps around 78F provided there is good aeration. At higher temps he will grow faster.

It really is a shame that live animals are still given as prizes. So many of them end up dying. Yours is probably the one out of thousands at that fair that will live a long, natural, healthy life. That's why Lucky is a great name!

Do you have any live plants in your sorority? Those really help with goldfish waste.
