The life of a goldfish in China can be quite tough.

Not everyone is lucky enough to spend its life in pools in parks. For most of them, life is not worth anything. During our stay in China we found them in many unusual places: sealed inside plastic keychains, used to test the quality of electric blankets or pans in supermarkets, or as a trophy in fishing for children.

Hoax or not? Unfortunately it is true.
