    I have a question. I have a pond and I discovered that we have some baby goldfish in the pond . Should I take them inside and deal with an aquarium or should I let nature do its thing . Will the other bigger goldfish eat them ?

    If they've made it to the point where you can see them, they are probably safe.

    And Welcome, by the way! What kind of pond do you have? How big and how many fish?

    My goldfish fry are 8 weeks old. Some have orange, yellow and black patterns. Two are black. Is that normal for common goldfish to have patterns?
    The eggs came from the goldfish, fathers are either shubunkin or goldfish.

    Really excited if i got a goldfish / shubunkin offbreed. Cause as of know there patterns are looking amazing. Just hoping they dont all turn orange :)

    Depends can be in the DNA they carry and all the past breeding effects color also and present breeding effects color also .They change color as they get older .My butterflies were black for 6 months and changed color until now they are white . 101_1447.JPG 101_1453.JPG
