The breeding mop has been removed and we can finally count the fry. We have ten baby goldfish!
It seemed a bit risky to just pull the mop out in case there were any fish caught up in it, so we cut the strands off one by one.
They are starting to get more ‘colourful’, that is to say their transluscenece is diminishing. True pigment will develop over their first year, with it taking two to three years before they reach full adult size.
