Should fantail goldfish have two anal fins, or one? My calico fantail has one anal fin. Is it bad, like, going to hurt her in the long run or something? :huh:

Yes, a fantail should have 2 anal fins, and no, its not dangerous for him if he only has one. A lot of fish have only one anal fin, its not very desirable with breeders, but it makes a friendly and loved pet fish nonetheless. :)

i'd say from the parent goldfishs one might have had 2 anal fins and the other has 1 anal fin and they mate then....well they spawn and thats what you get.......

That could be true, but also you can easily get a fish with one anal fin from two parents with two, and it's just a mutation or an alley in genetic structure, I think; please correct me if I'm wrong.

My fish has a missing anal fin too; deformities or differences like that are very common at pet stores, because a lot of the fish there are culls that breeders don't want.
