yeah i am a she not a he (thanks plantakiss), and yeah i have done tons of research so i don't put anything in that he might bother.I'm not to worried about the goldfish right now and if i see problems i can always throw a little seeweed in for him to munch on. also it's in an outdoor pond so theres lots to eat [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] that baby is really cute i got one that size to like 3 months ago and thought something ate him like 24 hours after putting him in, but in winterizing my pond i found him. so now i have 2. my new one is huge already but will probably double in size maxing out at about 2 1/2 feet. wow!
