    $\begingroup$ @RiddlerNewComer Hm. Do riddles need an explicit question? I'm looking at this for comparison. Does adding "What is this?" change anything? $\endgroup$

How about

You're eating an omelette.


The "gold fish" represent the golden yolks of eggs. They "swim" around in the egg whites. In the process of making an omelette (using a frying pan), these yolks will be broken down and mixed together, creating a single delicious mass of yellow egg.


Did you turn them into a fish cake? The stuff where you get all the meat. Mince it and add various ingredients before pan frying it?


My thought !

Little goldfishes eat each other until one is remaining...!

Fry the fish, and when they're done

They were young and they're done means they have grown/eaten.[fry : the young of various species of fish!!]
