Woman Bought 2 Walmart Goldfish And They Grew To Be Huge In Pond

According to About-Goldfish.com, goldfish growth rates depend on the conditions they live in.

In fact, they can grow 50% or more in a week after hatching!

The five factors that affect how big a goldfish grows are the water conditions, temperature, the amount of space, the type of food, and their overall health.

You can walk into most pet stores and find goldfish available – they are low maintenance and popular pets.

Many of the goldfish sadly will die after just a few weeks because people don’t take good care of them.

If you take good care of your goldfish, it can live up to 40 years!

Interestingly enough, she forgot all about them!

Several years later, her husband found the fish when he went to drain the pool as part of a maintenance routine.

Not only had the fish survived – they had thrived!

If you are thinking about getting a goldfish, don’t just buy a fish bowl.

According to The Nest, a fish bowl isn’t an acceptable environment for goldfish because they don’t give the fish enough space to grow.

Also, there isn’t enough filtration or aeration.

Be kind to animals, do your research and buy an appropriate size tank for your fish – then you can enjoy them for years!
