what are goldfish?
Goldfish were created from mutations among domesticated Chinese food fish. They were spawned from mutations that changed their silver ancestors into yellow, orange, and gold fish. Their shift into becoming house pets began in China as well. Today, the goldfish is the ideal house fish and is a symbolic fish in many cultures. Goldfish that have not been claimed into ownership by an aquarium, pet shop, or human family are usually found in most freshwater ponds across the world.
WHAT ARE THEIR MUSCULAR SYSTEMS LIKE?
The Muscular system plays a large role in the life of a goldfish. Muscles control nearly all of a goldfish's physical actions. It has three posterior lower-keel muscles in its fantail, which allows it to propel through the water. Two of them correspond with another two upper-keel muscles on their backbone that allow it to shift its body. The muscular system in a goldfish controls all of its primary movements in water, playing a huge role in their survival.
