Goldfish pics :D

I need to buy a bigger net for them cause they don't fit anymore. -_-
Paisley:




Pascal:




Parker:




Paris:




Piper:




Petunia:







And my newbies! I hate showing off and naming fish right when I get them but hopefully these guys will be okay...
Patchouli the ADORABLE baby ryukin (who I have hope can potentially develop a proper shape, he looks fine when he is under water..)


Peaches. A fantail with funny face marks. Looks like he will change into something interesting over time.




Poncho! ADORABLE little yellow ranchu/lionhead. Ahhh I love his markings. But his back is really straight (not curvy like Pascal's). Which really bothers me and it will probably be even more of an eyesore when he gets bigger but I felt super bad for him. :/ I will probably cry if he turns solid orange haha.

thank you soo much for sharing your pictures for two reasons..
1st they are very pretty fish !!!
2nd people can get to see how big these guys have the potential to grow,
i think lots of people don't realise how big any gold fish can get.

Wow, amazing close-up shots of your amazing goldfish! Nice, Olympia! They have fantastic colors and bodies; you must have been keeping them in quite healthy conditions :D

Thank you guys! :D I'm hoping this summer I will have more time to practice my photography. Fish are really hard to do hrmm.

They are still quite small for goldfish, hehe.
I hope the new kids grow quickly for me, I'd always been nervous of getting such small ones, maybe another half inch of length before I feel okay letting them swim with the big fish.

Hmmm it's just common practice to do with goldfish I suppose. It's tradition and I'm really interested in goldfish history so I just picked it up.. xD Some breeders think hands are better to use than nets.

Hmm well I can see where hands might be better then nets to move the fish if needed but just to pick them up for just a pic?? Isn't that more stress then needed??

Sorry Olympia not trying to sound hateful or mean.... just don't understand how picking up a fish out of water to take a pic should be common practice?

The first pic I took came out awesome and then the quality sort of started going down as time passed.. Hmm photos are hard. :/
