Untitled (Goldfish) Captivity Series #008

We always seem to be striving to live within our means. We budget, deny ourselves excess, and even save and plan for areas of expansion, like a larger home, or investing for a future.
A fish in nature never has to worry about living within it’s means. It’s means is a big pond, a river, or an ocean. In captivity however, the means are limited, but the well meaning caretaker is always there with food. Having never worried about having too much to eat and living in a limited environment leaves a fish well suited for it’s environment, but the same may not be true for this big guy.
