Gold Bars
« on: April 01, 2016, 08:43:43 20:43 »
I drove to Telford yesterday. Six hours in the car to pick up twenty five gold bars. Gold is very heavy. The manager of ‘Ripples’ helped load them in the car. Packed securely in their oxygen filled bag, at home, I floated them on my tank to acclimatize them to the ambient temperature.
Swimming free.
Wonderful Crucian Carp.
Glinting at me from the depths as the sun went down this evening.
I love this hobby.

The Crucian Carp are like sheep. The sole remaining Perch reminds me of a faithful sheepdog. Standing guard or herding the flock.
I have read that Carp in the presence of predators such as Perch or Pike adapt to their presence  by getting a rounder shape. This change can become genetic and passed on to subsequent generations.
Fascinating that this tiny fish could have a generational effect.
Breeding would be fun but I would need to do a lot of reading and research.
