Yup!! My brother, Billy and his friend Jack were using a large net in our dam, where we have lots of catfish, goldfish and other various fish. Anyways, I was on the comp. looking up rat care, when all of a sudden, he rushes in, yells in my ear "DEMI!!!! We caught that goldfish with the double tail! And it has a BABY!"

I rushed over, and sure enough in a bucket, their was a very large fantail goldfish and a 1" baby!!!! We had put 2 goldfish that were 2 inches at the start of the year, and I guess they were female/male!!!

Then Jack burst my happy bubble by saying "I'm taking it home to go in my tank" Ok, A lil background, Jack is the cruelest person in the world, all his pets die, so obviously I was angry! I said "Erm, stay here Jack, I needa talk to my dad..." I went to dad and he said that because the dam was so low, we wont be able to put them back in their, so I begged him and he said I can keep them!!!!!!!!! WHOOT! I'm making the pond today!!!! Atm they are in the bucket with the bubbler, I feel so cruel, via this, but we don't have anything else atm :-( I'm making the pond in an hour or so, so i hope they can hang tight for now :-)

We are looking if their are other goldfish in the dam too! Yay!

Sounds neat! My grandpa is making a pond and I am going to stock it to my liking also. I think we are gonna start it in a couple weeks out behind his house with and old cattle trough and put land timbers on the outside and my grandma can keep a garden around it and we can keep goldfish and koy inside it.

Check out the article on goldfish in my blog. It is not done yet but has tons of very important information in it that should be helpful.

Thx guys! And Thx Fishguy for the info!

The pair are now in a 100L+ pond, its 'temperory' as, my we don't want an accident when my lil sister gets to toddler stage..

I have named the large one 'Dimples' no idea why, I had a dream last nite about how I saved a wild mouse from the road and named it Dimples, so the name came to me ;-) The lil baby is undecided :-)
