Give it time, goldfish grow very slowly. It may take up to 3 years for a goldfish to reach adult size. Your fantails probably have grown, it's just been so subtle that you haven't noticed. Another way you could get them to grow quicker is to, instead of feeding them once or twice a day, feed them three times a day. Small goldfish's abdomens can't hold as much food at a single time as say a larger goldfish, so feeding them plenty of small meals throughout the day, will ensure they are getting plenty of nutrition.

What is a goldfish size?

It ranges. They generally grow their whole life. The oldest goldfish lived to be 49 and I believe it was about 3 feet....The house hold goldfish lives between 10-20 (20 means you did great!) years and get about a foot long. They seem small as babies but rapidly grow and need large tanks. Small tanks and bowls stunt their growth and causes many problems besides how big they get. So to answer your question, they get big.

What causes a goldfish to turn black?

If a goldfish's skin is burned, irritated, or damaged somehow their bodies will produce a chemical called Leukine. Leukine stimulates cells so that the damage is repaired faster. The thing is Leukine especially stimulates melanophores (black pigmentation cells) and they begin to reproduce rapidly in that area. This is why the goldfish is turning black.

Do goldfishes have short term memory loss after 3 secs?

No they do not. Goldfish can be trained and learn quite rapidly. They will also remember what they have learned. To check this out all you need to do is to change the place where you feed them. Within a couple of days they will be waiting at the new place. Goldfish can also be proved to recognise people both from their voices and appearance. Again this can be observed at feeding time.
