"Monstrous Self-Cloning Goldfish Take Over Canadian Waters"

Goldfish are a popular choice of pet amongst Americans and Canadians, ranking third in popularity. These intelligent creatures are highly regarded as ideal pets for small ponds, fish bowls, and aquariums. Despite their reputation for being fun and entertaining pets, Canadian goldfish owners are beginning to have second thoughts, as these adaptable pet fish have become problematic species in Canadian waters. Goldfish owners have been known to keep these monstrous creatures until they outgrow their tanks, with some opting to release them into local waterways or even to flush them down the toilet. However, such actions only make these species tougher and equally problematic when introduced into the wild. Once released into the wild, these goldfish can transform from household pets to invasive species capable of self-cloning and dominating local lakes. Female goldfish are capable of breeding copiously without the need for male counterparts. They can utilize the sperm of other minnows to fertilize their eggs, producing about 50,000 clones of themselves. These football-sized, voracious goldfish can easily displace native species, surviving even the harshest Canadian winter climates. In short, beware of the monster self-cloning goldfish!
