The breeding of ornamental goldfish has occupied man for centuries. Are these selective breeding programmes causing more harm than good? By examining the pros and cons of breeding Bubble-eyed Goldfish, I hope to discover whether this selective breeding is cruel or beneficial.
Overall, it is clear that while Bubble-eyed goldfish are considered attractive and are popular amongst fish-keepers. This ancient Chinese species has been saved from extinction, but the high risk of their eye-sacs being damaged by other fish and ornaments makes keeping them cruel in my opinion.
