In “What, of This Goldfish, would You Wish?” there was “a deep-sea goldfish” that was owned by Sergei, which was able to grant three wishes, and Sergei had used those wishes for unselfish reasons. The first wish was “...used up when they discovered a cancer in his sister.” The second wish “Sergei used up five years ago, on Sveta's boy...it wasn't for Sveta that he'd done it, that he'd wished his wish purely for the boy.” The final wish was then used to save the boy that he had killed on accident.

Unlike “What, of This Goldfish, would You Wish?”, in the story “The Fisherman and His Wife” the wishes from the “enchanted prince” flounder was used for greed and power.
