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?
breeders often handle their fish quite a bit.they do this for 100% water changes,and to show potential buyers the qualities of the parent stock. if you have a lot of money tied up in goldfish,and do your own diagnosis, it is also a good idea to get them used to being handled for taking biopsies,mucous scrapings etc. without harming the fish. initially it is a bit stressful.after a bit they remain quite calm.
olympia- your fish are quite lovely.
