Also referred to as the Japanese version of the Fantail goldfish, the Ryukin goldfish is a beautiful pond fish that frequents many ponds and larger freshwater aquariums. Boasting a splendorous mix of orange, black, white, and red splotches around its body, the Calico Ryukin goldfish makes for a fascinating fish to watch gracefully swimming around your aquarium or outdoor pond. Featuring an extremely high back, these Ryukin goldfish are sometimes even described as having a dorsal hump, as their backs and neck regions create a pointed appearance. In addition, these calico freshwater fish have caudal fins that are wider than that of the Japanese Fantail goldfish. Distinguished for having a triangular-shaped body with an arched backbone or dorsal hump, these remarkable goldfish typically have a fat belly and feathery fins. When it comes to classifying these goldfish, it is the general belief that the higher the backbone or hump behind its head, the higher the quality. As with most goldfish, live plants usually don't fare well with them, as these fish will take bites out of the edges of plants. Despite its round body shape and long fins, the Ryukin is a strong swimmer.
