A few days ago, I asked our social media followers what they thought we used our two new goldfish for, and got some amazing answers! Funnily enough, the inspiration for getting goldfish was from an episode of Peaky Blinders where there were goldfish in the water troughs of the racehorses. After looking up this intriguing practice, I found out it's a long standing traveller tradition to keep goldfish in horse bowls as they "keep the levels of hair algae down". I like to test things out for myself, so I'm yet to investigate this by calculating if I clean the trough less nowadays!
