Goldfish

After guppies, goldfish are my next favorite fish. What is it about cheap and easy-to-care-for fish? I don't know why I like them but I do. I don't have any goldfish right now because they don't work well in a community tank. Guppies are better. However, anytime I haven't had an aquarium, I've had a goldfish or two.




There's just something peaceful about watching fish swim around in a tank or large bowl. This is what I started Saturday, simple washes of orange and red watercolor and then let it go where it goes. Then I drew goldfish over the top and cut them out. These are ATC sized at 2.5 x 3.5 if anyone wants to trade.

I too love goldfish. I wonder why they don't get more respect? They are so beautiful and graceful.

Oh, I would LOVE to trade for any of them. I'm not home right now to show mine, but tell me what you like and I'll dig thru my stash when I get home.
