Goldfish spawned!

This isn't the first time my some of my fish have bred, so I know what I need to do. I just wanted to share with everyone! There are about 800 oranda/ryukin fry.

Not all fry are expected to survive. Expect culling several of the resulting fry. Most are deformed and some remain stunted which is to be expected considering the large number of fry you have. Those ones will need to be culled unfortunately. It is up to you though. It is better to have a few fry that have potentials of reaching adulthood properly than to try keeping alive all the fry and risk having a majority stunted due to tight space, foods, etc.

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.

My dad decided to feed them for me one day while I was at school. He added so much food they all died. I tried to save them.
