Is This Normal?

FlowDen

Okay so I have this oranda. His body is growing long, almost like a common goldfish. He still has his fantail bit his wen is small. It stayed the same size on his head and never spread or grew larger. Just his body grows. Is that normal?

Did you get it from a breeder who had the fishes parents and siblings, if not it could be genetics, but if you did see them contact the breeder.

I got him at a swapmeet. Do I just wait until sunday to ask the people there about his gene pool?

Goldfish are Tetraploid, instead of Diploid like most other animals, their genetics are a bit more complicated.
