One Eyed Goldfish

So I adopted a one eyed goldfish today from the fish store. He is in my pond right now. I am not sure if I will keep him there, but he does seem to be doing just fine.

I might name him Willy. You know, from Goonies, lol.

Thanks. He is really cute.

My pond is 155 gallon.

I have 5 fancy goldfish and 7-8 rosy red minnows.

The minnows were kind of a "sacrifice" before I put my goldfish in. Awful I know, but they lived which is great. I like to see them schooling around. I am going to get a few more.

I don't know why he is missing his eye.

He is still doing well though.

Honestly I avoid the fishies with one eye in the stores,only because I am afraid they will be sick and pass something on to my other fish.I feel bad for them tho.

I doubt it was an illness that caused him missing eye. Could be an injury or a deformity at birth.

Oh I know.It probably is not an illness.Thats just why I don't buy the fish with one eye.Not saying they are sick,just you never know.Know what I am trying to say? Sorry that I cannot explain myself well... I am glad you have him tho!
