Advice needed....Pond Comet is preggers

If they're like many other fish, not only will they eat their young--they'll eat their own eggs. I have a feeling that goldfish are among those whose ONLY part of breeding is the laying and fertilization of the eggs.

I've tried MANY times to breed egg-laying fish with very little success. Best success is outdoors--seems very difficult in an aquarium. Zebras are quite easy--in anywhere near the right environment it just happens. Goldfish seem even easier--I did nothing except build the pond.

My loud "everything's OK alarm" frog <I>finally</I> found a mate this year--last couple years he only attracted another male for a calling contest. The "hidden" pond is filled with tadpoles (actually polywogs now). The goldfish in there are only 2"-3" but I'm still a bit surprised that they didn't eat the eggs.
