What type of Fancy Goldfish? #1
This is spot, my Calico goldfish, I can't remember what she was sold as and can't figure it out from the internet. Her tail is one large fin which as far as I can tell you don't get in fancies.
Any ideas?

I don't think she is a Shubunkin as her body is too round shaped, but I could be wrong.

What's a bitzer

After some sleep I seem to remember her being sold as a fantail oranda, but she is obviously not a fantail!
She is a very strong but lazy swimmer; my big oranada makes swimming look difficult but Spot makes it look easy!

I may have to wait for her to grow a little larger, as you can tell from the photo she's about the size of a Danio atm.

yeah, looks like a mongrel, probably a lot better off than most fancies thanks to those proportional fins, I bet she will be an ace swimmer! How do you know it's a 'she' already?

I believe single-tailed fancies are known as a nymphs

couple of posts i made a number of years ago:

Just a guess at this stage because of her round belly and how she interacts with the two males :)

Managed to get a slightly better picture today, it's not easy as she wont stay still for long, apart from when she is facing me and begging for food

She's put a little growth on now and looks like she might be a Ryukin, just with a single tail.
