The Black Butterfly can be identified by its forked tail, egg shaped body and long fins. Due to its long and fluttery fins, this fish does best with other slow swimmers. These fish come in a wide variety of colors and patterns ranging from Calico to Metallic Red to Silver. This specific one is a Black. Related to carp, Goldfish prefer cool temperatures compared to Tropical Fish. Live plants are not the best option to have in a tank with this fish as they will nip at leaves, damaging a plant until it rots away. Black Butterfly Goldfish will also dig at the substrate creating divots and small valleys. These fish may also be candidates to keep in a pond as well, similar to Koi.
