Rather than the long, slender body of the Common Goldfish or the Shubunkins, the Fantail Goldfish is one of the more rounded or egg-shaped fancy goldfish. These fish are bred for showing. Their main feature, the split tail fin, is medium in length and slightly forked.
To be a good show specimen, the tail fin needs to be completely split with the two lobes much closer together on top than on the bottom, making it look triangular when viewed from the back. Good show goldfish also have a double anal fin with complete separation. Those whose tail fins are not completely split won't win any prizes, but still make great pets.
Shipping size approximately 2 inches.
