@stux Gif description: Someone is holding a large goldfish in their hand, in front of a lake. They gently toss the fish into the water several meters away, and the fish returns instantly to them and lets them pick it out and throw it again, then it returns once again. The fish does not seem very stressed to be handled.
@stux Throwing goldfish into lakes is not funny.
They don't belong and they become an invasive species.
In the "wild" these colours are a distinct disadvantage. In the Highlands, owners of ornamental carp have to cover the outside ponds with netting, as otherwise they are easy game for herons and other predators.
Yes, down in vancouver they lose ornamental fish to otters and racoons, but they thrive in our lakes and out-compete the native fish.
