Talking Goldfish anyone?

I've always loved and kept fish but just recently I've discovered goldfish keeping! I had thought that goldfish were super not exciting and that they were stayed tiny and all sorts of bad stuff. But then I joined a goldfish forum and oh man, did I learn stuff. Haha

So two weeks ago I got my first goldie. His name is S.E.F., which stands for Special Ed Fish becuase he only has one eye. Haha

This is S.E.F.:





NO EYE!!!



Then I got two more yesterday, S.E.F. Is so awesome that I had to get more. Haha Their names are D.F. (Differently-gifted fish, she loves bubbles, ALOT) and B.F. (Brain Fish, he looks like he has a brain on his head).

D.F. Is way more of a camera hog than B.F. So there're more pictures of her. Haha

D.F.!






Fish butt! Haha



B.F.!






Anybody else like/have goldfish? =D

My goldfish wakes me up in the morning. No kidding. He practically jumps out of his bowl! O_O

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Sunny- Hahahahaha I can totally envision that. Goldies are hilarious. I caught myself talking to S.E.F. Like he was a dog last night...then I realized that even though he acts like a dog, he is not, in fact, a dog. Lol!

Annalover- Gill is adorable! I love his black fin tips. Yay for survivors! O.o
My camera has flashed at my fish multiple times and none of them are dead yet. =) No worries.


I'm SUPER excited for this next week. I bought them a thirty gallon tank (from goodwill, for $20, O.o ) and S.E.F.'ll be moving in as soon as the filter I bought on ebay comes. The other ones will be moving in as soon as they are done with quaratine in 4 weeks. So excited!

I have a goldfish named swimmers!

Horses aren't just a pleasure, they are an escape from all evils of mankind.

I've had fish in the past, they're so fun! I had Betas', and different sized Goldies. Unfortunately, my Beta (Addien [[Add-ee-in], all white with one gray dot) died, and I was so upset. Stopped fish keeping after that. He lived about a year, and was such a good pet as far as fish go. Lol.
