This is my third post, and i just wanted to share with you guys a pic I found 2 years ago. I'm not sure if you seen it before, but I have to post it again because im amazed at the size of it. I forgot which website I pulled it off from because i do want to give credit to the person. I know the fish is from Guangzhou City in Southern China. Goldfish and Koi are very popular in these areas, where breeding is at a max and also the goal of creating a new type of goldfish.

Sorry if this pic was posted already.


Im not sure if this is true, i heard from a friend, he told me that some breeders feed goldfish steroids at a young age, to promote their growth. Does anybody know about this or can clarify for me, im a bit shocked.

yep, its bruce alright. the one and the only.

and yes, i too have read about steroids being fed (or injected?) to goldfish and koi. they give them the steroids and place them into raceways so that they get really big really fast. definitely not a good thing to do. au natural is the way to go.

and bruce i believe isnt one of the steroid super fish. at least thats what weve been told. either way, he is THE worlds largest goldfish on record.
