John, hands are also used in pictures like this to give a scale of the fish. In just a plain bowl sometimes scale can be a bit hard to determine. It's also a good way to show just how much a fish has grown. Two pictures side by side in the same hand can have quite a impact.

Your goldies are so pretty, Oli! I hope the new ones make it just fine! And don't do some serious color changing!

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.

Thank you all. Hehe.

Over the summer I am thinking about setting up a 40 gallon for a trio of tosakin from Fish Sempai. I just found out they ship door to door now. I am hoping that I could get some for under $50 a fish (obviously not going to be great quality). >_< Cause I'm not ready to shell out too much. If the tosakin are too expensive though I'd probably get some bubble eyes or telescopes.

Edit: Brushing up on my tosakin knowledge I think they will be at least a couple hundred a fish. xD I was thinking it'd be a fun breeding project but was reminded of all the nonsense of raising them in round bowls and stuff.

Maybe some jikin will be a better choice for first time breeding.
