A Butterfly Dream ~ 莊周夢蝶


惠子曰:「子非魚,安知魚之樂?」
莊子曰:「子非我,安知我不知魚之樂?」

莊子: "知魚之樂"

Huizi : "You're not a fish — how do you know the fish is happy?"

Zhuangzi : "You're not me, so how do you know I don't know that the fish is happy?"

~ Excerpt "Happiness of a fish" by
the ancient Chinese Philosopher Zhuangzi


 
Inspiration from the show "How to train your dragon"

Stealing some free time in the Pearlscale breeding season to tease my shiny scale Dragon Eyes Butterfly. Isn't it a very happy fish? :)

For the next few weeks, I am bracing myself to cull two large spawns of Dragon Eyes Pearlscales (45k to 50k). The challenge then is to grow such a big brood healthily and big enough for culling.

That's a great fish... To be honest I love Butterfly rather than TVR (Top View Ranchu).

I would love to see your creations on this breed....

I heard in Japan Butterfly are very popular.

Hi friend, I would love to but I can't just breed any goldfish I want. I like too many varieties and if I breed them all, my hobby will kill me first :)

Yes! the Dragon Eyes Butterfly is picking up in Japan too.

I hope to view your harvest in due time :)
