I think many people have had a goldfish as a pet at one time or other in their life and there's usually a story to go along with how it came home with you.
As a child I never had a goldfish, and never recall seeing them for sale or as prizes at a fair - not that there were any fairs here in Newfoundland then, just the Regatta in the summer. So I think I made up for it by gathering up fish of all kinds later in life.
I used to have many, many fish at one point, both cold water goldfish, koi and tropical fish as well. The goldfish mostly lived in a little pond in the garden but a few that were more exotic were always the inside pets.
I have no fish right now, but feel the need for a few live models arising. There is nothing better than watching them move and seeing the light reflect on the gold and orange scales.
Its time to get another goldfish I believe.
