I whacked a big ol goldfish this past spring, just over three pounds. I dropped him off at the taxidermist. Have any of you ever done a goldy before? Seems like it is taking him forever, he has had it since March. He told me it would be done in June, and I talked to him last night, he said about another thirty days. He said the humidity is killing his ability to paint. He also said he had some serious repair to do, replacing scales and whatnot. Understandable, I shot it straight through the top of the head at about fifteen feet. Thing is, I dont know what scales he is talking about, Goldys dont have scales on the top of their heads, its smooth skin.? I can't wait to see it! Could you post a pic of one you have done if you have any? I need something to look at until mine is done!
