Well, I was raised with fish during my childhood life and I loved it. When I was young my dad had me help with the fish tank. I looked at the tank all my spare time. We had a real home grown tank lol. Being from up north (Parry Sound) we had the Georgian Bay for all our supplies and yes even fish. We had Newts, guppies ( you know... baby bass, perch, sunfish etc, ) We also had some store bought fish like angelfish and an Oscar. We had lots of snails in our tank, naturally, and all our plants were from the bay as well.
I never knew the difference. That's how I was raised lol. As I got older I learned about different types of fish
There are so many beautiful types of Goldfish and now im a proud owner of a goldfish tank.
