    These are LARGER relatives of the goldfish. Big, beautiful, cold-water
fish that really aren't suitable for long term life in anything smaller than
a pond. (They get to the point where they are too long to turn around in
most indoor aquariums, and this isn't kind to them at all. I believe that
they also share the goldfish's dietary preferences, and being big herbivores
are a poor choice for environments where keeping plants is a primary goal.
