The goldfish are eating my water lilies! Please help

So I grabbed some lily pads from a friend's pond to see how they would do in my greenhouse pond.  They seem to be OK except that the new shoots and leaves are being annihilated by my goldfish.  Can anybody explain this?

You can see in the center is a young reddish leaf, or rather what is left of one.

 And here is an older leaves (bottom) with bite marks.  They have also killed all but the largest hyacinth by devouring all the roots.
