Goldfish are the hardiest fish you could add to your pond. If you are new to keeping fish, standard bodied fish such as sarasa comets or shubunkins are the best choice because they are very resilient. They don’t grow too large, yet they are very colourful and look great in any pond. That’s not to say goldfish aren’t for experienced pond keepers, or for the serious fish enthusiast. Many fish have long flowing fins that look spectacular especially once they grow larger.
