    Why don't we have a photo thread like many of the other forum sections? I don't see a reason we shouldn't all brag about our adorable fish kids a little.

    So post a photo of your goldfish - a favorite shot, a portrait, a full tank shot, whatever. Tell us how many you keep, what varieties, tank size.

    I'm also adding a poll to this thread so we can get an idea of what our goldfish community looks like! Check all that apply. :)

    I'll start us off. I have a 120 gallon tank. I keep midnight shubunkin, shubunkin, oranda, common, comet, watonai and koi/goldfish hybrids. Here are a few old photos:

    This full tank shot is a little old - the gravel is now black, but the white nursery box is still in there, now with midnight shub fry in it.

    Napoleon and Upstart.

    Sirius, midnight shub, and Sygnus, hybrid.

    Who's next?

    I'm so sorry Rocky, I included it in my original list but forgot to include it in the poll! You can vote for ranchu, since they are related, if you like. That's my fault, again I'm sorry. Oops!
