Goldfish behaviour

Post by Ruth »

He seems to have taken himself to bed! When I poke him he swishes his tail but doesn’t swim off. He was active and eating today. He’s about 7 years old...

@Ruth got to remember it has been a tad warm. Mine use be a little dopey after a warm day, they would always be hanging around the margins or in amongst the plants. Wait till it's cool off in the morning see how they are then.
You know when your getting older when you start talking about growing house plants! :dodgy2:

Well, he can't have gotten out because its all covered with netting. Perhaps he has found himself another fold in the liner or between plant pots to hide away?
(Do you know which one this is, by name?) Hope he makes an appearance later on still.

If he lives to 40 he’ll have a new owner - I’ll be close to glory and waiting it out in a nice nursing home with my best mate! We’ve picked one out already 🤣🤣🤣
