    Following on from my thread last January (https://www.petforums.co.uk/threads/goldfish-fry.440245/), my babies are a year old! :)

    Chester has lost all his black colour now, and is bigger than ever!

    Kite has also lost almost all of her black, and seems to be getting some white on her sides now.

    Captain is still doing well despite his deformed mouth, I'm not sure he will ever change colour though!

    And new baby girl Celeste (got her back in October) has settled in really well. She likes hanging out with Kite & Captain, I think because they are all fairly similar in size :)

    Wow how they have grown from those tiny little fry. They are magnificent. :)

    They've grown into lovely fish :) Chester really is huge - a true example of just how much a goldfish can grow in one year!

    And a good demonstration why they need a tank large enough for their needs from the outset.

    Thanks :) I'm so pleased with them, they seem to be doing really well. Chester has gone quite deep-bodied too, he almost looks a bit ryukin.

    Oh they are beautiful, Its lovely to see how they look now although it only seems like yesterday they were tiny enough to be in test kit lid! Do you know how those that went to new homes are doing?

    I know, I can't believe they were ever that small now! :D
    I must dig out the contact details and find out how the rest are doing.
