...that most if not all goldfishes have at least one genetic health problem because centuries of inbreeding and genetic sclupting has damaged their genetics like look at the pictures. It's a (1)celestial eye and a (2)bubble eye goldfish (I couldn't get the image thingie work).

2) https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&source= ... 1720974015

A stargazers eyes are permanently positioned upwards. They can't see where they swim and very prone to have eye injuries and can gouge their eyes out by colliding to things inside the aquarium. For a bubble eye, I guess its obvious. It can't even properly swim, and an average goldfish does not have a hydrodynamic body to begin with. And did you noticed both of them has a dorsal fin :!: A side effect of too much inbreeding.

That's terrible. Do you think it would be possible to breed out those problems?

I think it has become permanent because Carassius auratus is now a ring species because of too much selective breeding (chance of a stargazer and a oranda goldfish mating is extremely low). Goldfish were wild carps, but now they dont resemble any carp at all anymore.

Do the breeders know that the fish are suffering? What can be done to stop them from breeding fish that don't function normally?

That Necrozma had a fifth move called 'surprise butsecks' Pluto is actually a part of a binary system with Charon. Because Charon being of the half size of Pluto, the gravitational center is shifted away from Pluto's center. The other 4 moons that that they share is orbiting around the gravitational center.

TIL that my monitor is 59 Hz, not 60 Hz, but 59 Hz specifically, this means my frame rate cannot be 60 fps without V-sync due to being 1 Hz off.

Drosophila melanogaster larvae infected with wasp larvae will consume toxic levels of alcohol to kill the wasps. They medicate themselves
