How big do goldfish grow? It seems an innocent enough question. The answer is "it depends". It depends on the size of the aquarium that they spend their days swimming around in. House-bound goldfish can perhaps make it to 2 to 3 inches. Goldfish that have been released to the wild and haven't ended up on the menu of somebody higher up the food chain have been reported to grow to a whopping 12 to 14 inches.
Unless you find the collecting of trivia to be fascinating I would expect the next question forming in your mind to be "Who cares? Why is this important to me?" Okay, that was really two questions disguised as one...
The point: How many of us have had limitations placed upon our personal growth and development and our potential, by others or even worse ... by ourselves?
