History of the goldfish
Did you know that the goldfish was originally grey? Called Crassius Auratus, it lived in the fast-flowing, cool and well-oxygenated rivers of North East Asia. It fed by searching the riverbed for larvae and other food morsels, consuming a large amount of vegetation. The first recorded gold colouration was discovered in the Chun Dynasty (265-419 AD) and was bred selectively in China and Japan for the noble class. The variety of beautiful goldfish we have today is often the first choice for new aquarium owners worldwide.
