Types of Goldfish:

Comet Shubunkin Fantail Black Moor
The comet is generally the most common of pond goldfish. It has a long slender body. This is often the typical orange colored goldfish but can also be all white or white and red (known as sarassa). The Shubunkin has an identical body shape to the Comet. The difference is in the coloration. Shubunkins should have a base color of light blue, which is covered with patterns of darker blue, red, brown, white, or black. Another common pond fish is the Fantail. Fantails are shorter and more plump than comets. Their caudal fin (tail) is split giving them the fantail name. Basic Fantails can be found in any goldfish colors (calico, sarassa, etc.). The Black Moor has the body of a fantail. As the name would imply this fish is solid black in color. Its most distinguishing characteristic is the bulging of the eyes.


Ryukin Oranda Lionhead Bubble-Eye
Ryukins are very similar to the basic fantail, the difference is in the slope of the back. The Ryukin has a sharp slope between the head and the dorsal fin. Orandas are also of fantail shape, distinguishing feature is the headgrowth. The headgrowth is known as the hood and has the appearance of being covered with warts. The Lionhead is similar to the oranda in that it has both the fantail shape and headgrowth. The difference in this fish is that it completely lacks a dorsal fin. Fantail with a distinguishing factor of he liquid-filled sacs that balloon out from below the eye sockets. The eyes of the bubble-eye are also pointed upward.
