I'm sorry nobody has been able to help yet but sometimes you just need to be patient. I'm sure of the members that have viewed your post, none of them know too much about the fish in question so they don't want to give you bad information (no information is MUCH better than bad information). We've got plenty of knowledgeable members here and I'm sure you'll get help soon Good luck

I don't know a huge amount about goldies but it looks like a white veiltail to me. It's sort of hard to tell with the pics being sideways.

Do veiltail goldfish have 2 tails? From the pictures, yours looks like it only has one. And based on the long slender body shape, it might be a comet (I believe veiltales have rounder bodies).

+3 with above. It could be a veiltail but if I turn my head, it looks like a comveil (comet+veiltail) lol

Where did you rescue him? An LFS or? He is adorable and beautiful

my partners grandparents had the fish but they have recently emigrated no one seems to know much about it really. i'm thinking he's a comet now lol i see pics online then think its that one then i'll notice a difference in characteristics and he'll be something else. also when you say a fish is 'white' are we talking white white or pearlescent cos this fella aint white lol he also has quite a bit of yellow colouring especially in the face and fins
