I attempted to take a picture of one of my two goldfish, "Thoon", because he's a bit of an oddity: he is a normal Comet, but he has three tail fins!
"Thoon's 3rd fin is a superpower, and he doesn't know" - SB
It doesn't negatively affect him at all, thankfully.
(NB. It's not easy taking a photo of a goldfish with a little 'point'n'shoot' camera!)
I kinda like that irony that I have a unique common goldfish! Thanks, Thoon! 🐠
One whole year I've had both Thoon and Katia so far - and going strong!
Here's the tank and Katia putting on a show, whilst Thoon is shyly poking his head out from behind a plant (lower centre)
➽► So, why "Thoon"?
Short answer: it's a fun, silly, random name (very me...).
Long answer: In a band many years ago, we used to invent words for sounds (for silly fun)... 'Thoon' was "the sound of a cricket ball bowled just past off-stump..." 🏏
I know... it's bizarre, random and absurd... perfect!
Happy 14 months, my fishies!
(Not my tank, unfortunately! Thanks to @BrownsFanGurl for the vid!)
Relax with this video of Goldfish
(Not my tank tho!)
