    I bought this fish out of an assorted group of fancy goldfish at my LFS can anybody tell me if he is a fantail or a Ryukin?

    totally not a goldfish expert here but i believe Ryukin are rounder no?

    That’s what I thought too and they have more of a hump on the top... but I wasn’t sure if it’s something they grow into... and also on my receipt the called it a Ryukin but their tank was labeled assorted...

    Hello Fancy...

    Very pretty fish. Looks like my Veiltails.

    Pretty certain it's a Fantail and not a Ryukin. FYI for next time, a proper side pic, one that's level with the fish, not taken above it or below, helps a lot better on IDing.

    looks like a fantail.

    need a side view. juvenile Ryukins have a small hump.

    At most, he may just be a ryukin cull - due to late development of the hump or just simply will not grow one - but he looks like a fantail to me.

    anybody else think the markings near the head look like they have potential to turn into a wen? or am I wrong?
    pretty safe to assume he's a fantail. Come back to us if he gets a super high back lol
