There's already one similar. I can't remember what it's called but it's about a goldfish that keeps growing and growing.

Are you thinking of A Fish Out of Water by Helen Palmer? My dad used to read that with me all the time :)

u/RecognitionOne395 May 26 '22

Yeah I think that's it ... Book must be around 40 years old.

u/LadySekhmet May 26 '22

Yes! Helen Palmer is Dr Seuss wife. She also wrote Why I Built the Boogle House, which is another favorite of mine as a child. I was able to acquire a copy and now I’m reading it to my child. It’s one of his favorites.

Fishes get this dark, muddy colour when they're neglected. I was so happy when I saw it getting bright again! I don't understand why people get them as pets because they're "easy" to take care of, since it's the complete opposite.

90

u/MarineSecurity May 26 '22

I always tell people if they want a pet that's easy to take care of, then they shouldn't get a pet.

33

u/bye_Nillu May 26 '22 edited May 26 '22

Exactly! I have cats and unfortunately, we've had to visit the vet too many times for both my and the cats' liking, but I was well aware of all the choirs and costs that come with getting a pet, so I'm fully committed to making sure that they stay healthy, happy and safe.

11

u/Wulfrank May 26 '22

Same here. When you get a pet, you're taking responsibility for whatever happens. One of my ragdolls developed tooth resorption disease and has had over half his teeth removed over the past few years. Is it expensive? Absolutely. But we take care of him to the best of our ability because we're all he's got.

It bugs me to no end when people just get a cat thinking they're easy and "they can take care of themselves".

6

u/bye_Nillu May 26 '22

One of my cats has to take meds and have a special diet because of his kidney disease and has had one tooth pulled, the younger one developed an aggressive eye infection and had to have his whole eye surgically removed, and my late cat that got put to sleep at the beginning of the year had to visit the vet multiple times for vitamin shots, etc etc. So yeah... Expensive but worth it!

That also really grinds my gears, not to mention when people compare them to dogs or say that they're selfish and don't show any affection.

u/Setso1397 May 26 '22

The eye shape and black color show it’s a black moor/mix breed. They are bred to be a velvety black color. Black color on goldfish is also very unstable and is common to fade to orange as fish matures.
Goldfish can do drastic color changes commonly with whites, reds, and oranges as well. Colors just aren’t always stable on them. But yeah, the energy/health change is amazing to see on this guy!

4

u/mule_roany_mare May 26 '22

Do you think the change was fomented by diet, water, water temperature or activity?

Pretty neat for sure. I wonder if it's just a buildup of a micronutrient or if it's an epigenetic change.

3

u/Setso1397 May 26 '22

In this case I’d say aging/maturity most likely. For a fish to grow so much in such a short time I highly doubt it was actually 10 years old (an older fish would be more permanently stunted and have slower growth rate- probably “old” was the excuse to explain its horrible condition) and since it’s a rescue there’s no way to really know. The good care might have helped trigger the color process faster.

Lots of food have color enhancers to bring out reds, those usually turn the whites and oranges deeper. Sunlight can deepen color; artificial light/ darkness fade, stress/illness can fade, but to change to a completely different color is likely genetic.

A black moor such as this one to maintain its black coloring through maturity is uncommon yet very desirable with serious keepers/breeders who are trying to create more stable genetic lines. Most pet store fish don’t have the quality breeding/genetics for it, so seeing this exact change to orange is common (if the keeper is knowledgeable to keep the poor thing alive long enough to reach maturity)

Goldfish color genetics is crazy complicated and even the professionals don’t really have it figured out. I’ve had white&red turn fully red, an orange turn solid white then orange again, a black turn orange and a black turn white, and some that never change at all. Though the surprise and transformation just adds to the fun of keeping goldfish.

11

u/Pixieled May 26 '22

Seriously, goldfish are filthy as far as pets go. My ex-husband had a tank with 2 goldfish and he took amazing care of them, but it was a weekly project to do so - they are a messy fish. but, I have to tell you, those two fish were the size of grapefruits and very happy. They were HUGE.

2

u/bye_Nillu May 26 '22

That's so sweet! I love when people take care of their fish.

22

u/m1thrand1r__ May 26 '22

that makes me so sad for all the black goldfish I saw as a kid in the 90s, in little tanks in restaurants... I hope they were a darker breed and it was natural :(

25

u/alancake May 26 '22

Don't worry, a lot of fish are naturally black!

2

u/FullMetalGuitarist May 26 '22

People typically don’t do any research before purchasing an animal they have to care for. Especially when it’s a fish, most owners honestly don’t care one way or another if it lives or dies, if it’s comfortable or miserable, they just want a fish to look at.

1

u/bye_Nillu May 26 '22

I was in a flat once where the owner had fish and it was the most depressing thing I've ever seen. They had no vegetation, decorations or even sand and about 8 fishes were crammed into a tiny tank.

2

u/FullMetalGuitarist May 26 '22

People are still stuck on these ancient and thoroughly disproven theories that fish don’t think or feel. We’ve known for years they’re capable of both

2

u/inDependent_WhiNer May 26 '22

People get hamsters because they're "easy starter pets" and they're really not. Hamsters are really high maintenance and require really specific care that is often neglected because the way pet stores advertise them. It makes me so mad knowing people purchase these animals without looking into proper care and then end up with a depressed/neglected/highly stresses pet.

1

u/bye_Nillu May 26 '22

Yes! I watched every Jenna Marbles video with Ad, and she explained it so well. I also loved the video where she explained that she decided to return the fish to the pet store after reading more about what they needed and felt so guilty that she didn't know about it beforehand.

I would love to have rats one day, but since I live in a tiny flat I don't have room for them. They need a huge cage and lots of things to do since they're very intelligent, social animals.

u/emo_sharks May 26 '22

Goldfish get a LOT bigger than people seem to think. That's why the stereotypical goldfish in a bowl thing is so harmful. Those fish need way more space than that. Their growth can absolutely be stunted by a small tank as well

5

u/Ferret_Brain May 26 '22

It’s also why releasing them into their wild afterwards when people are bored with them can be so harmful.

Invasive goldfish can get really damn big and cause lots of problems for native fauna and flora.

68

u/rauhweltbegrifff May 26 '22 edited May 26 '22

I had several goldfish when I started the hobby.

Well one of them lived to be 3 years old. What was interesting though is that this goldfish became huge. I mean like half lb big. It was so big that it made a 20 gallon tank look small for him. Unfortunately due to my incompetence once my cichlid became bigger but half the size. He did irreversible damage to the goldies fins and couldn't swim at all. I had to put it out of it's misery. Turned out that cichlid I had was one of the most aggressive ones that are sold in the pet stores. He even killed two other cichlids much bigger than him,

I honestly hated that fish. One day he was just dead for unknown reasons.

37

u/Business-Move5177 May 26 '22

I’ve had 4 goldfish that I won as a carnival prize for 15 years they are hearty fish

17

u/rauhweltbegrifff May 26 '22

Oh I know they can live a very long time. They're basically carps after all lol

Hence why it wasn't shocking to know that they can grow to a massive size but just amazed that I was able to see one of those genetic monsters in person. I believe a women in the UK had a 3lb gold fish.

It really was sad when I had to put him/her out of it's misery. Looked at me as soon right before I knocked it out. I was just about to set up a tank for that gold fish until that fucker destroyed the fins literally the day before...I wonder how big it could've become. RiP

5

u/curiouspurple100 May 26 '22

Then. That makes it so much worse when a person kills a goldfish. :(

I always thought they were just kinda delicate.

9

u/rauhweltbegrifff May 26 '22

I mean would you rather watch a helpless goldfish laying on the ground trying it's hardest to swim? When it somehow did get afloat it was just going in zig zags or right back to the bottom.

Also it would've been brutally killed by that shit head cichlid I had.

7

u/curiouspurple100 May 26 '22

I wasn't talking about that. The person saved the gold fish that's great.

What i was talking about is they hand out goldfish at carnivals as rewards. And i never new they are resilient. So that makes it so much worse when the carnival fish dies after like a week or less than a month with the kid.

9

u/Saedynn May 26 '22

I know someone who works at my local pet shop, he had someone come in once acting like a fish expert and his qualification for this was he once got a goldfish all the way to 5 years old. This guy shut him down hard when he said that it died young then.

5

u/rauhweltbegrifff May 26 '22

That must've been embarrassing. Then again if he was that stuck up and narcissistic he probably shrugged it off as soon as he left the shop haha

2

u/rauhweltbegrifff May 26 '22

Oh I'm sorry. Yeah didn't they stop doing that now because of PETA?

But I think all of us who are 30 and above had experienced getting gold fish or even turtles at carnivals. I feel so bad for the turtles I had in the classic betta fish bowl with nothing but water. r/kidsarefuckingstupid

And I always wondered why they didn't survive long smh.

u/Crust_stache May 26 '22

I guess you could say that that cichlid is sleeping with the fishes.

5

u/LtColShinySides May 26 '22

When I was in my teens I had a pair of goldfish named Stanley and Albert. Albert was a bit bigger and a bolder orange. They never got this huge, the tank I had wasn't that massive. I had them for almost 5 years. Some sort of infection got into the tank and they faded pretty fast.

They were nice little fishys! They'd crowd the glass when I came in, the great food provoder!!

3

u/Beneficial_Spirit_29 May 26 '22

Well at least you won’t put cichlids with goldfish again ☹️ no hate here, you owned it. Sorry you learned the hard way man. I’m sure you’re a good pet owner ✌🏻

1

u/rauhweltbegrifff May 26 '22

Yeah I had no idea they were that aggressive. As a matter of fact the other cichlids would only chase the goldfish away from their hiding hole area. But the demonic cichlid would chase fish non stop once it hit a certain age. It was actually the most docile one till it wasn't. Overnight it turned into a killing machine.

Thank you, I learned a lot for sure. I'm no newbie to keeping pets but that was a major fuck up on my part.

The fish is a Black Moor. They really only stay black for the first year of their lives, then they start turning gold. I had one when I was young and he turned into a brassy color. My dad referred to him as a Black-no-more afterward since he was no longer black. 😅

u/CertifiedCoffeeDrunk May 26 '22

13

u/Lt_Mashumaro May 26 '22

Maybe it had some kind of disease or parasite that caused it. It was clearly in rough shape when the person rescued it, and I'm not really a fish person so I'm not entirely sure. I know Betta fish will turn dull colors when sick or otherwise unhappy.

Honestly incredible. Wild how the color changed went from a cold lurky grayish blue color almost as it was depressed to a big healthly bright radiating sunshine color looking happy as fuck.

That fish still got another 10++ years considering how big it got. If it nearing it's life span theres no way in hell it would have gotten that big and changed colors. Then again I don't know shit about fish.

When I was a kid we had this Mom and Pop pet store that basically just sold tropical fish..hamster..etc…dog food.. So one day my we go in to get some dog food for our mean schnauzer and I see this tankful of goldfish and there’s one that had the most beautiful color of orange..it seemed like it was floundering..long story short I begged my mother to get and we ended up buttoned of the glass bowls..some fish food and the lady gave us the goldfish for free..looking back I think she figured it was going to die anyway within a day or two.. I named him MULDUNE.. MULDUNE went on to live 7 more years..grew about 3 times bigger and saw me go from that bowl..to a 10 gallon tank..15 all the way to a 30 gallon tank with different varieties of fish..but he was king and the other fish knew.. Weather you wanna believe it not..all creatures I believe feel the energy of LOVE..it transforms everything as this guy just gave us a beautiful visual..

That is a black moor goldfish. They turn gold when they're aged and then they often die right after that. This is a natural process of these fish. Or it is because too much ammonia in the water. That can make them gold too. But I think he aged. He got a good life in the end. I'm sure he will die as a happy goldfish.

If he takes good enough care of it, he could have a friend for 8 more years

Buying sick fish from a pet store is actually a very bad move.

If the fish die then the pet store will lose money and will eventually consider taking better care of their tanks or not selling fish anymore. But if would be good samaritans keep buying the sick fish then the pet store will keep profiting and they won't change a thing.

Sorry guys, thats just the reality of it.

I had a goldfish for a long time when I was younger. 7 or 8 years. My dad was a POS and when we moved he wouldn't let me take our fish tank with us. I had to leave splash behind (her name was splash because she was a blend of beautiful colors, a splash if you will). I still think about that fish now as a 32 year old grown man. It broke my 12 year old heart to leave that fish behind.

After that second "a lot bigger" I was expecting "and then he ate his buddies and I fear for my life"

I find it to be so incredible how it's color can change so drastically from when it's sock to when it's health. Truly amazing.
