The Biggest Goldfish And Smallest Minke Whale In The World

The Mirror says the pet “weighs more than two pounds and is five inches tall (surely long? – Ed). Experts say he will one day overtake the world’s longest goldfish, an 18.7in whopper in Holland.”

Mrs Shaw, a retired civil servant, said: “I don’t overfeed him but I am very particular about how I care for Goldie. He gets fed fish flakes like clockwork twice a day in the morning and evening and I always talk to him and keep him occupied.

“I leave the light on at night so he is not in the dark and if the sun is glaring on him, I will draw the curtains so he doesn’t get too much sun.”

The Mail wants to know if Goldie is the largest goldfish in the world, or the smallest minke whale?

And if Goldie should be crossbred with a pilchard to provide the elderly with a regular source of home-farmed protein..?
