I have been away from my Garden pond for some time (18 months) and had 4
goldfish when I left. I had someone 'looking after' them but when I
returned there was only 1 goldfish left, about 5-6 inches long, maybe
longer. The really mysterious thing is now I have 3 new fish, about 2-3
inches that no-one knows where they came from. I thought they might be
last season's off-spring except they are not gold in colour. They are a
dark grey colour, and when the sun-light is shining they appear to have
a bit of a gold hue, but that might just be my imagination.
Could they be goldfish? The man in the local pet shop said they can be
light grey, but mine are dark grey. If they are goldfish how long do I
have to wait for them to change to gold? Do I need to feed them
anything special for this?
