Just How Fast Is A Comet?

Watched my "little" 4" Comet light the afterburners today as I walked into the kitchen. I almost laughed outloud. He was moving so fast that he was boiling the water around his tail in a cavitation of foam bubbles. That guy just put the hammer down!! I'm still not sure how he got it all shut down before he shot right through the end glass.

Their quite zippy fish! My sarasa comets in the pond are like lightning! :rofl

Comets are fast, but wait until you see a startled koi tear off at full speed! :rofl Speeding bullets! Well, speeding torpedos, considering how big they are.

Oh yeah, they are fast! When my comet was in a 20 gallon tank, he would actually hit the glass, poor thing. He's much happier out in my pond now.

My lionhead was out in the pond too, last summer, and even though he is a very powerful swimmer, the singletails would leave him in the dust when they really got going.
