They are not really "freakishly" large. Goldfish will continue to grow as long as they have food and room. Both are abundant in Lake Tahoe.
My little Black Moor, Buddy, grew to 5 inches, and Burpy grew bigger than that. They were the only two fish in a 50 gallon aquarium. The only other
living thing was my snail, Larry. Larry grew to be about 2 inches in diameter.
Why it would wreck the ecosystem is the amazing amount of poop goldfish create. They are very dirty fish.
