Just the other day I was wondering why goldfish aren't outlawed because if released into the waterways they can become a nuance. Some states have outlawed white clouds because they can survive when released. And many more states have outlawed pond plants like water lettuce and water hyacinth. So why not goldfish? I wouldn't mind applying for a permit to own my goldfish.

If anyone is interested in pictures, I found a local news site with them:

And a video:

What I found amusing was the people had no idea how big a Goldfish gets.

That's crazy We should use this video when someone asks "How big will my goldfish get?"

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
