Comet Goldfish

Goldfish were first bred more than a thousand years ago in China, but it was not until 300 years ago they came to Europe.  There are now many varieties and all sorts of intermediate hybrids, but for convenience they can be divided into two groups. Pond Types can be  left outdoors in the winter, as long as the proper precautions are taken to protect the fish from freezing, and that sufficient oxygen is available at all times. Prolonged periods of thick icing of the pond can cause harm, and even death to the heartiest of pond fish.  Fancy Types have split and ornate tails, and rounded bodies that make them slower fish. Though they are hardy, they do better if brought indoors before icy weather arrives. They also do better if they do not have to compete with faster, more aggressive fish for their food.
