Good afternoon,

Out of the selection I would also choose the fantail. However, my favorite is the Lion Head or Oranda

I like both too! I like the fantails because they are like the 'iconic' fancy goldfish and they are also one of the least deformed of the goldfish breeds.

I like the Moors because they are so unusual in their appearance and who doesn't love those big googly eyes

Of the ones you listed, the fantail. More specifically, the calico fantails. Although personally I prefer the normal long-bodied goldies (commons, comets, shubunkins). I like fish that look like fish.

I had a beautiful calico goldfish. Unfortunately he got ich. It was BAD. It started as white spots and turned to open woods. I felt horrible. One day it seemed as though he was healing and I thought he would pull through, and I named him Lucky Koi. Unfortunately he didn't make it.

I like fantails, too. I feel kinda sorry for bubble eyes and celestial goldfish. Not sure about black moors, though. I agree with Ken, orandas are the best goldfish EVA!

Mmmm I have never given much attention to Orandas before? I guess the 'Raspberry' like growth on their head puts me off a bit.
Does any one here keep Orandas?
