A goldfish story of survival

A goldfish story of survival (Image 1)

A goldfish meant to be dinner for a larger fish seven years ago has beat the odds and is thriving at an aquarium in central Japan, according to NTV in Japan.

The goldfish survived by swimming into a filter pipe that cleans water from the main tank and therefore provides an ample amount of food as well as warm water.

The goldfish lived there undetected for years. Now the goldfish measures 10 inches long and weighs nearly a pound, far larger than any other feeder fish.

The fish is now one of the main attractions at Shima Marineland and has inspired visitors with its story of survival.
