Somethings fishy here....

One's an impostor....

Congrats on the win Vic!

As to the fish, I'd say the smaller one at the back with the red head, all the others are catfish, that one is a goldfish. Guess based on one of mine looking exactly like it with the added bonus of blood red eyes, hence the name Damien :)

Actually the big ones are Koi or Japanese Carp, not Catfish, but the Goldfish is right. I've raised all 3 types, even managed to get Goldfish to spawn once, danged hard to do and even harder to tell if one has a tank full of females or males....

I thought with the little whiskers they looked a bit like catfish :) I've currently got a small tank with some baby goldfish in (managed to rescue a few eggs before they got eaten). Looking forward to see them grow up, they still haven't got their colours yet, so as to who the mummy or daddy is I still have no idea :)

Goldfish and Koi are considered different species, if they interbreed one gets sterile offspring.... Koi are more for ponds and I've seen some whoppers, goldfish can be in a pond or an aquarium, I like fish, but considering where I live, it might be impractical.

GM Mike, Julie, Bernie, Andy.
Late morning win. Was up late trying to figure out why Skype wouldn't work on SO's laptop. Answer - it doesn't have a microphone. Doh!

Cheddar, yes, yes, Rochefort, no. Why am I up? My lower back's in pain, so I took some Tylenol 22 minutes back, so maybe in 8 I can try and go back to bed.
