I had tow goldfish:) he goldfish, Carassius auratus, was one of the earliest fish to be domesticated, and is still one of the most commonly kept aquarium fish. A relatively small member of the carp family (which also includes the koi carp and the crucian carp), the goldfish is a domesticated version of a dark-gray/olive/brown carp native to east Asia (first domesticated in China) that was introduced to Europe in the late 17th century. The mutation that gave rise to the goldfish is also known from other cyprinid species, such as common carp and tench.

We used to have goldfish, but right now we have guppies. My husband's boss has a pond with goldfish in it. They're huge. I would like to have one, but my husband says we can't put them into our pond unless we do something to it and knowing him he'll never get around to doing anything to it.
