    When they are kept as pets in small fish tanks and aquariums, goldfish tend to stay about 1-2 inches long and never grow larger than 6 inches (15 centimeters), However, apparently in the wild, goldfish often reach 12 to 14 inches (30 to 35 cm) in length.

    Your fish will be dead soon. ONE goldfish needs a minimum of 25-30 gallons with a strong filter as they are messy fish.

    that jug is way to small for a goldfish to have a good life.

    You're being cruel. He doesn't need a tank, just a bigger fish bowl. They are not that expensive. If you can't take care of him properly, give him to someone who can.

    gold fish grow to fit their enviorment and diet. if u keep him in a coffee can and feed him a regular amount of flakes he will stay around that size. however, livin in a coffee can does not sound very fun, consider getting him a glass tank when possible :)

    While goldfish tend to stay small in a bowl or an aquarium in the wild they can grow quite large here is a picture of an actual wild goldfish! Yep that's real goldfish.

    as amusing as your fantasies are - for example, you can't remember your age - you really do need to speak to a professional about your crying need for attention.
