How big does the common "feeder" goldfish get? Also how long does it take them to reach full size?

Thanks

comets get to be about 10-14" depending. There are many different types of feeders in those feeder tanks so sometimes it's hard to tell.

Depends on what you call full size. They are decent size and quite large by less than a year(6-7 inches) if not faster-at least in my pond.

Rosey Reds aren't goldfish, they're a color variety of Fathead Minnows.

Common goldfish (not me, not my fish):

That's not really an exception. Goldfish are BIG fish and need to be treated like it! Ultimately the best home for a goldfish is a pond, not a tank.

No Kidding little mousling!!! That thing is enormous! I don't take it that's a comet? I was looking at some comets a couple days ago, they looked slimmer bodied than that. I was thinking I'll get a few once my pond is planted. But I wouldn't want THOSE in there! I have a cat... and I'm afraid a fish that big would eat it!

It's a common (shorter fins) but yup, it's pretty stout. Like humans, sooner or later length growth starts fading out in favor of, ahem, width growth. Wink
