It's always the same old issue with us goldfish fanatics, isn't it? Too many wonderful, amazing goldfish out there, and not enough tank space.
I feel more restricted than ever with my 30 gallon tank right now, because 2 goldfish is the absolute max I can have and feel like I can give them a good life. I'm thinking really wistfully of the days when I had my big ranchu tank, and a second goldfish tank in the bedroom. I usually had 5 fish in residence at any given time, and while I still got that "new fish itch" from time to time, my goldie lust was more or less sated.
But times are different now, and with my new living situation, I'm pretty much limited to just the one tank for the forseeable future. It is what it is. Nothing I can do about it.
But when I come across stunners like this, it's hard to keep from swooning and wishing things were different, you know?
I mean, come ON.
