Ryukin Goldfish


Species group:
 Goldfish

Scientific name: Carassius auratus (variety)

Country / place of origin: China

Appearance

Details: The Ryukin Goldfish is a variety of fancy goldfish that is characterized by a dorsal hump that begins right behind the head, and a more pointed head than other varieties of Goldfish. The Ryukin is considered to be a Japanese adaptation of the Fantail Goldfish.

Goldfish belong to the Carp family (Cyprinidae), and are some of the most commonly kept aquarium and outdoor pond fish. Goldfish are a domesticated version of a less-colorful Carp (Carassius auratus) and were first domesticated in China more than a thousand years ago. Goldfish are very social fish, and flourish in a community tank free of aggressive fish.
