The pond fiah were sold to me as shubbies but I know now that they are comets, a couple of them have small barbels and I just noticed that a couple of the fry have them also.

If NO goldfish have barbels.. well, that would explain why I cannot keep underwater plants in the pond and it is the ones with the barbels that do the most damage.

Rats, I meant to say sarsas instead of shubbies.. it seems to me that I have read somwhere that sarsas have barbels too.. I will try to find that again.

No I have never heard of goldfish with barbels, neither sarassas nor shubies. The wild carp fish can have it though.

Thanks! That explains soo much! And the place I bought these guys at specialized in Koi.. :whatjust: I really didnt want koi, but now that they are here... I'll keep them, I am building a huge pond out back next year so I guess they will be ok where they are till then.
