I bought a small bubble stone for the goldfish. These are the two feeder fish I bought for 18 cents at PetSmart. They are now about  4-5  inches long and just beautiful. They keep swimming into the bubbles at the bottom of the tank, letting the bubbles carry them to the top, circle the tank and do it over and over. They even wait their turn. I just love these guys. And as my daughter says "Two more lives saved"

I am thinking of getting a bigger tank. The fins on Spot are just unbelievable. And people do eat carp. Some of the lower income folks around here catch them in the river here and make Carp Balls. Like meat balls but with ground carp. They say they are tasty if made right.

Beautiful Goldfish!!!!!!!!!!!! handshappy hugu

Ya' do know that goldfish are my absolute mostest favorite fish don't ya'?!!!!!!  thumb

I have had a few in my time & I have always loved them the most of all my fish I've ever kept.  smile3 I don't keep fish anymore just because I can't find enough time to keep up the cleaning with all the other critters I have to take care of. If I didn't work, I'd get some goldfish again. happyjack

And there are folks out here that catch & eat carp too. I have never tasted them & wouldn't know how to fix them, but I  think since carp have so many tiny bones, I have heard they pressure cook them. dknow

Catfish is the only local fish I will eat, but I am not a fisher person, so mine comes from the store. dmblaf

Yeah, here too and also Sheepshead  :deer:  Many of the lower income folk smoke em too.  Smoke em, Hmmm  thinkin3  Also around here we have an abundance of Northern Pike.  Though a great sport fish too many bones and not all that great for eating.  My buddy created a recipe for em where he grinds the meat and makes patties.  Way good!  dinner

Same here. I've caught some real good sized sheepshead and people will come and ask for them if it looks like you are gonna release them. And I think to make those carpo balls, they grind bones and all. I just couldn't eat as carp or a drumfish ( sheepshead)

When I was married to my first hubby, we had a lot of large tanks. We had 8" long Egyptian Mouth Breeders, huge Jewel fish. They were both mouth breeders. They would hatch hundreds of babies, then when you approached the tank, they would all zoom into daddys mouth. Then after you sat down, they would come out in little "spits" of 30 - 40 babies until all were out and about again. Mom hatched then if I remember correctly, daddy did most of the after birth babysitting. I know thats how it was with the Egyptians. They were big beautiful fish.
