A Tale of Two Goldfish
In January of 2004 I bought some $0.56 feeder goldfish from Wal-Mart. I thought I was getting some nice, colourful, cheap, short term pets. Boy, was I ever wrong!(Not about the nice, colourful part though!) These two started out very tiny and now they are about 8 inches long from nose to tail and are still growing. I read that this particular kind of fish can grow to be 18 inches long if placed in a large enough tank and can live to be 80 years old. 80. Good grief! I never thought I would potentially need to will my goldfish to someone.
