The term 'telescope' is quite misleading. As these fish grow larger and thus their eyes grow larger they actually have a loss of acuity in their vision instead of an improvement as the term telescope would imply. Thus they are a handicapped fish and should be kept ONLY with fish of the same kind.
This variety is NOT suitable for ponds.
