The Museum

The Pop-eyed Goldfish can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:

"They're known for their protruding eyes, as the name indicates, but this feature is actually a detriment. Their vision is quite poor, to the point that they will swim past food and frequently bump into things. They are a type of goldfish and get their distinguishing eye pop about two months after birth."


Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:

"I got a pop-eyed goldfish! It should have eaten its spinach!"
