It's a dog eat dog world

In response to the following query search, which brought a newcomer to my blog:-


“my goldfish ate one of my other goldfish on wednesday and still has part of it in his mouth on saturday will he choke?”


I can say with complete confidence, no, he won’t choke, but he is probably carnivorous so your other goldfish may be in danger. Is your tank large enough to accommodate one super sized goldfish? And by the by, how do you know that he’s male?

I have a friend who maintains that her goldfish was a crabby, angry thing until one day he ate his brother, after which he lived happily--swimmingly--for 12 more years.

I'll be darned, I never knew that goldfish were carnivorous, I thought that was reserved for piranhas and the like. Learn something new every day!

My mom's fish ate the mate she bought him. Rude, huh?

Your post is gong back a bit, but if you still might like to see a fishy tale, try my last Friday And Fish post! x (Now it's March!)

Has anybody ever published a book about goldfish tales?
We had one for years, he survived all the other fish in the pond.
