If I saw a reverted Goldfish, I would call it a Carp, which is what it is anyway.

Mind you, while Goldfish breed every year, they can live for thirty years in the wild, much longer than in an aquarium.

Roger - Amazing capture of such a shy bird - so "close & personal!" Colors just right, detail perfect, and such a great story so well-preserved!

Outstanding Rodger!
I can imagine it was quite a feeling to get to capture these. Nice work. Really nice.

All these fish are voracious and can easily handle the wide bodies of the Goldfish.

In some of the warmer bodies of water in the prairies we have Pike, but also large Walleyed Pike and very large Channel Catfish. All three are eating machines.

We do have some Carp, which of course are in the same fish family as Goldfish. Our Carp can grow very large.



Anyway, fascinating pictures, fish situation and link.

What did they say in the book and movie Jurassic Park..." Nature finds a way..."

You nailed it "Nature Finds a Way"

I don't know the correct answer.

It sounds like it may take a long time for all of them to change color.

Because they are so different than anything I have I am going to keep them.
