Its frustratingly difficult to actually capture the detail in these little goldfish. There is just SO much clarity and detail in the skulls that the camera just can’t pick up on properly. Each gill arch, the tiny bones that connect to form the jaws, are all highly visible to the eye.
Goldfish are one of the more challenging specimens (for their size) to diaphonise, as their bodies are so dense. From previous explorations, I’ve found they come out much nicer on the whole when left fully intact (intestines and all!) as they hold their shape better. This also gives us an interesting insight to their innards, as sometimes, depending on what they had eaten prior to their deaths, we might see some interesting patterns where the stain has bound to something in their digestive tracts. Some of these little guys have adorable little swirls in their bellies <3
