Found Some Goldfish Scales!

Recommended Posts

These scales have been sitting in the tank for months and I had no idea what they were and assumed the filter would suck them up since my gravel vac wasn't. I finally picked them out today and realized they were scales! I also checked my QT tank and found a couple in there as well.

These scales most likely came from my white common. They are quite larger than I thought they would be.

it's certainly surprising.. we normally only see about 1/4 of each scale when we're looking at our goldies :)

I was just kidding, although I have seen them for sale before ;)

Now you just need to keep an eye out for teeth! those are even more fun to find than scales ;)

4:16 is just a typical source of protein that you would normally find in a water source and harmless. fish love them :) when we think we're starving them, they actually do consume things our eyes cannot see! :D
