agreed, the man looks way to comfortable for that fish to be 30lbs. However, if you want to keep giant goldfish, or goldfish that will hopefully grow to be giant, a pond is probably your best bet.

Can a Goldfish grow that big?

Exactly.

The fish at the link looks more like a koi or wild carp, both of which get very big. Koi get about 2-4 feet. All goldfish get rather large though, fancy varieties can get 6-10 inches while the long and lean comets can reach 2 feet when kept in ponds.

The largest goldfish I have personally seen were three 8-10 inch ryukins that lived in a 100 gallon tank at a Chinese restaurant.

I had a comet that I won at a fair for 8 or 9 years and it topped out 8 inches or so.

Thanks All guys! But many people say that the news is really true. I am confused...

Oboy...You just looked at the koi, not a true goldfish.

The biggest goldfish would be comets or hibunas (common goldfish) at 18 inches. Shubunkins are a tad smaller but all singletails are best kept in ponds or anything not smaller than a 75g. A 75g can fit only at least 3 singletails.

The largest fancies are orandas, ryukins, fantails, telescopes, lionheads and ranchus at 8-10 inches average. The largest ever recorded is an oranda, Bruce at 14.6" but that feat is rarely achieved. 12" alone is good enough. One of my black orandas that recently passed away was 10-12" in length.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
