Some of you might remember that I yet again had fry late last year. I kept a small number and the rest is up for adoption. Amongst those I kept is this single fancy goldfish that was produced in that spawn - while all the others are comets, Japanese shubunkins and a couple London shubunkins. That one fancy looks like a ranchu without wen, and this fish is suuuper tiny. He is a cross of a female lionhead and one of two male shubunkins. At the time I took the pics (a few weeks back) , this guy was eight months old! Now I know that fish grow at different rates and growth depends on their genes, so I am not worried or concerned. I am rather amused and in a strange way delighted by his (or her) petiteness. Keep in mind that I have hands the size of dinner plates, and this little guy is less than two inches / five cm long. Love him though because he is so darn cute! :
