The Comet is the single most popular variety of goldfish, extremely hardy and colourful.  The Comet strain was first developed in Washington (USA) in the 1880's, they are very adaptable, well suited to garden ponds and the unheated aquarium or bowl.

Comets, Shubunkins and Fans (Fantails) are some of the most popular of goldfish varieties, all very hardy and ideally suited to being kept indoors and outdoors throughout Australia.

The Comet strain was first developed in Washington (USA) in the 1880's and is now the most popular single goldfish variety.  With a streamlined body shape and long flowing tail, Comets are well suited to garden ponds, as well as the unheated aquarium or bowl.

These varieties are not fussy about water conditions or diet, and are very easy to care for.  Like all goldfish, they are quite peaceful.

Comets, Shubunkins and Fans (Fantails) are some of the most popular of goldfish varieties, all very hardy and ideally suited to being kept indoors and outdoors throughout Australia.

The Fan (Fantail) is the most popular of the double tailed goldfish varieties, an ideal fish for bowls, unheated aquariums and garden ponds.  It kept outdoors, provide some protection from cats and birds, as the Fan is not as agile as a Comet or Shubunkin.

These varieties are not fussy about water conditions or diet, and are very easy to care for.  Like all goldfish, they are quite peaceful.

Available Variations : Calico Fantails, Red Cap Fantails, Red and Black Fantails

SHUBUNKIN - Available sizes = 5CM, 7CM, 12CM, 14CM, 20CM
SHUBUNKIN 5CM

The Shubunkin was developed in Japan circa 1900, and quickly became very popular in western countries.  Like the Comet, it is a slender fish, ideal for garden and ponds, and the unheated aquarium or bowl.  It has been developed into several different forms, these mainly differ by tail shape.  Shubunkins can be extremely variable in colour, which is part of their appeal.

These varieties are not fussy about water conditions or diet, and are very easy to care for.  Like all goldfish, they are quite peaceful

ASSORTED ORANDA - Available sizes = 4CM, 7CM, 8CM, 12CM, 15CM

BLACK ORANDA SELECT 7CM
Black Oranda
BLUE ORANDA  5CM
Blue Oranda

With amazing head growth and long flowing fins, the Oranda is one of the most impressive fancy goldfish varieties.  First developed in Japan in the nineteenth century, Orandas are immensely popular and have been progressively developed into a wide range of colours.

The unusual head growth (or "hood") develops with age.  Young fish may show no discernible head growth whereas some large specimens may have such pronounced head growth, it is starting to cover the eyes.

Orandas are well suited to unheated aquariums and bowls, and can also be kept outdoors (provide protection from predators such as cats or birds). 

They are not fussy about water conditions or diet, and are quite easy to care for.  Like all goldfish, they are quite peaceful.

BLACK MOOR GoldfishBLACK MOOR SELECT 8CM
black demekin (Black Moor)
available in 8CM only

With a lovely jet-black colour, protruding eyes and a nice double tail, the Black Moor is one of the most popular of goldfish varieties.  It is an ideal fish for the unheated aquariums or bowl and makes a nice contrast to brightly coloured fish such as Comets and Ryukins.

The Black Moor is also a hardy fish for outdoor ponds, but protection from predators may be needed (e.g. wire meshing or netting, or for a less obtrusive barrier: fishing line criss-crossing above the pond can be effective against birds.)

Black Moors are not particularly fussy about water conditions or diet, and are quite easy to care for.  Like all goldfish, they are quite peaceful.

This variety is believed to have first appeared in China in the 19th century.

CALICO BUBBLE EYE - Available sizes = 4CM, 5CM, 6CM and 7CM
CALICO BUBBLE EYE 5CM
Calico Bubble Eye
RED BUBBLE EYE 5CM
Red Bubble Eye

With distinctive fluid filled "bubbles" directly under their eyes, Bubble Eyes are one of the most bizarre-looking of fancy Goldfish varieties.  The Bubble Eye was first developed in China in the early twentieth century, but did not become well known until after World War 2.  This variety also has a double (paired) tail fin and normally does not have a dorsal fin.  (However a Bubble Eye with a dorsal fin has also been produced in China).

Bubble Eyes are best kept indoors in an unheated aquarium or bowl, with other slower moving goldfish varieties.  With their highly developed form, they can have difficulty competing for food when housed with quick moving fish such as Comets.

If kept outdoors, ensure some protection from predators is provided, as the Bubble Eye is an easy target for cats or birds.

Bubble Eyes are not fussy about water conditions or diet, and are easy to care for.  Please ensure they are handled with care to avoid damaging their bubbles.

ASSORTED BUTTERFLY TAIL - Available sizes = 6CM and 9CM
Black Butterfly Tail
PANDA BUTTERFLY TAIL 9CM
Panda Butterfly Tail

At first glance the Butterfly Tail looks quite similar to the Dragon eye Goldfish; both having telescopic eyes, short rounded bodies and a paired tail fin.  On closer inspection it can be seen that the tail of the Butterfly Tail spreads horizontally, and is beautifully symmetrical.  When viewed from above, the tails butterfly-effect becomes particularly noticeable.

Butterfly Tails are ideal for the unheated aquarium or bowl, and for situations where they can be viewed from above, such as in large ceramic containers.  If kept in garden ponds, ensure some protection from predators is provided.

Like all Goldfish varieties, the Butterfly Tail is not particularly fussy about water conditions or diet, and is easy to care for.

 

 

Also Available are:

MIDNIGHT BUTTERFLY TAIL available sizes 6CM, 8CM
MIDNIGHT BUTTERFLY TAIL 8CM
TRI COLOUR PANDA BUTTERFLY TAIL 7CM

RED POM POM CELESTIAL EYES - Available sizes = 5CM and 6CM
RED POM POM CELESTIAL 6CMRED CELESTIAL 6CM

One of several rather bizarre looking Goldfish varieties, Celestial Eyes are notable for their protruding eyes fixed gazing skywards.  They also do not have a dorsal fin, have a paired tail fin and are predominantly orange to red in colour.

Celestial Eyes are best kept indoors in an unheated aquarium or bowl, with other slower moving goldfish varieties.  With their highly developed form, they can have difficulty competing for food when housed with quick moving fish such as Comets.  Celestial Eyes are not particularly fussy about water conditions or diet, and are easy to care for.

This variety was first developed in China, possibly circa 1900.  (A rarer version with a dorsal fin has also been produced in China.)

Red Cappe Dragon EyeRED CAP DRAGON EYE 5CM

Dragon Eyes are quite distinctive with their protruding eyes, rounded bodies and double tails.  They are also known as Telescope Eyes or Moors (e.g. Black Moor).  They are well suited to unheated aquariums and bowls, and can also be kept outdoors (provide protection from predators such as cats or birds).

Dragon Eyes are not fussy about water conditions or diet, and are quite easy to care for.  Like all goldfish, they are quite peaceful.

Goldfish with protruding eyes have been depicted in illustrations as far back as the eighteenth century, and were possibly present in China even as far back as the sixteenth century.

SIAMESE DOLL DRAGON EYE 5CM
PEARL SCALE 4CM - Available sizes = 4CM,5CM
PEARL SCALE GoldfishCALICO PEARL SCALE Gold FishCalico Pearl Scale

The Pearl Scale is a very attractive and popular fantail-type goldfish.  Their scales are convex, creating a very appealing dimpled effect.  They have quite rounded bodies, with some specimens looking more like a ping-pong ball with fins!

The variety became established in China in the 1920's, and several different variations and colour forms now exist.

Pearl Scales are best kept indoors in an unheated aquarium or bowl, they are not fussy about water conditions or diet, and are quite easy to care for.  If kept outdoors, ensure they have adequate protection from cats or birds, as the Pearl Scale is not a fast moving variety.  Like all goldfish, they are quite peaceful.

CHOCOLATE ORANGE POMPOM 7CM
CHOCOLATE ORANGE POMPOM 7CM

Pom Pom goldfish are yet another example of the amazing variations created by the selective breeding of goldfish.  These fish have two fluffy-looking ball-like appendages on the top of the head between the eyes (the appendages are also know as nariel bouquets).

The appendages increase in size as the fish matures, young fish may barely have discernible pom poms whereas older fish can have very impressively sized pom poms.

These fish tend to be mainly chocolate or red in colour (or a mixture of the two), and often can have pom poms that are differently coloured to the fish's body.  The majority of Pom Pom goldfish have dorsal fins as these are more popular, but other variations also exist such as the Pom Pom Celestial Eye. 

These fish are well suited to unheated aquariums and bowls, and can also be kept outdoors (but provide protection from predators such as cats or birds).

Pom Poms are not fussy about water conditions or diet, and are quite easy to care for.  Like all goldfish, they are quite peaceful.

RANCHU -Available sizes 5CM, 6CM, 8CM, 10CM

BLACK RANCHU Goldfish
Black Ranchu



Red Ranch

One of several goldfish types without a dorsal fin, Ranchu are solid bodied fish with a broad head.  As they grow, Ranchu develop an impressive head growth that encompasses the entire head, sometimes even obscuring the fish's eyes.  Developed in Japan, this variety is very popular in many countries and now occurs in a number of colour forms.

They are well suited to unheated aquariums and bowls, and can also be kept outdoors (provide protection from predators such as cats or birds).

Ranchu are not fussy about water conditions or diet, and are quite easy to care for.

Like all goldfish, they are quite peaceful.

The Ryukin is a deep-bodied form of fantail, which was originally developed in Japan (they are still extremely popular in that country).

As these fish mature, they develop a characteristic hump behind the head and become progressively deeper bodied - the body depth of some specimens can be 75-80% of their body length.  Ryukins also develop quite intense colouration, the red and white and the calico are good examples of this.

Broad tail and short tail Ryukins have also been developed.

Ryukin are well suited to unheated aquariums and bowls, and can also be kept outdoors (provide protection from predators such as cats and birds). 

They are not fussy about water conditions or diet, and are quite easy to care for.  Like all goldfish, they are quite peaceful.

NYMPH - Available sizes = 8CM,12CM
NYMPH Goldfish The Nymph has a single tail similar to a Comet or Shubunkin, but with a more rounded body like a Fantail.
RED & WHITE WAKIN - Available sizes = 5CM, 8CM, 12CM
RED & WHITE WAKIN
Wakin

The Wakin goldfish is an alternative pond fish to comets and shubunkins.  The Wakin’s odd shape is a curiosity – at first glance it looks like a comet with a short fan-tail.  Closer examination of good fish will show a distinct dolphin-like body shape.

The Wakin is a slender bodied Japanese goldfish variety ideal for both indoor and outdoor situations.  They have a body shape similar to the common goldfish, but with a short double tail and a double anal fin.  Wakins usually develop quite intense red colouration, red and white coloured fish are also very attractive.

Several other colour forms are also occasionally available.

Wakin are well suited to unheated aquariums and bowls, and with a very active manner, they make an excellent pond fish.  They are not fussy about water conditions or diet, and are quite easy to care for.  Like all goldfish, they are quite peaceful.
