How cute! Those guts on a few of them, are they Pearlscales mixes?

nope. their mama is a Lemon Oranda & the possible daddies were a Calico Ryukin, Red & White Ryukin & a Black Moor...altho I suppose there may have been Pearlscale somewhere in the lineage...not really sure how fish genetics works.

Awww gosh I really love that dark single tail! What a fattie! :D

He/She has a name...or at least what I've been calling him/her since becoming the biggest, fattest of all the single tails...altho I'm not sure I can say it on this forum...lol. He/She will, of course, get a real name...just as soon as I'm struck by a more fitting one. also, I originally didn't plan on keeping any of the single tails for myself, but he/she was the reason I decided to keep him/her & the other more yellow single tail...they were tubmates & now they are about the same size. His/Her eyes are starting to stick out more too...wondering if it will have tele eyes eventually...we'll see...

Could be the Oranda or Ryukin, then. My short bodied Oranda (I call her a ping pong ball with eyes :P) is real round like the from the top.

In goldfish, the dominate traits fight over who is more dominant, and those will show. Not sure which are more dominant and which aren't, though. Some are co-dominant and will show along side another. You get neat looking fish like that lol

most of the 14 weekers are short and tubby...altho, there are a few, like Jagger (there's another post about him/her) that are long and leaner...they are few...but they are here. Personally I like the short, fatties.

I've got both. I like them for different reasons lol I've got a longer bodies one in my pond, and he has a great natural royal blue color and has a nice top view. Then I've got my little ping pong ball in the 50 gallon, and it's so funny watching her wobble around. I have another in the 50 gallon that is in between, and she's more graceful than either of the other two. But the whole draw to fancy goldfish are those fat little bellies x3

I have three Orandas...Lemon Drop (my lemon head), Coco Puff (chocolate Oranda, was already named this when it was given to me to save) & Captain Finsworth (red cap, also a rescued fish)...they are all short bodied and wobbly, but they are crazy fast in getting around the tank. In fact, the only long bodied fish I have in the main tank is Edna (orange with a red & white butterfly tail & a phantom of the opera mask-esque white side of her face) & she just glides thru the water. I have a tub of her eggs now...waiting for them to hatch...should be tomorrow. And of course, Lemon Drop's latest fry are now 5 days old. Hoping for more fatty babies!
