Does the bottom one have a dorsal?

Doesn't look like it, does it? I also see a strange bump...

I just presumed that it was bent over :idont

:bingo: you can see it at the very beginning that it is bent over.

I would say you have a ryukin and fantail :)

The orange one looks like my fish, which was sold to me as a ryukin but I was told here that he was a swallow-tailed fantail, probably from ryukin stock. My fish has the exact same fin type and body shape as yours. :)

I would say yours looks longer in the body. Beautiful fish though :)

I have never seen a dorsal bend that low before. It is almost as if it broken at the base if it is bent that low. Usually there is a visible bend.

Very cute, both of them!! Gorgeous coloring on the orange one (and yes I see that awesome tele in there!! Love that one!!)

I'm so curious to see more pictures of the white one. It's complete matte, right?

Here's Nishiki when I first got her:

And then a couple of years later:

So, as you can see...the hump can develop over time :)

Wow - that looks like two different fish! She's beautiful.

Yes, it does have a dorsal. It's just bent over. All of its fins flow through the water like a cape. It's pretty cool!

Okay, then it's not a Shukin. I thought that was just a bump or a spike in the first pic :)

She's beautiful that shot looks like a still frame from a David Attenborough/BBC documentary: beautiful fish against black lol. But seriously. She's transparent and rose coloured?! I am so into it :)
