You got a picture of her? Is one front fin growing bigger than the other? Where they equal at first?

With the coloration, calico is a color discription, yes, but some calicos have more blue, some more red, some go deeper into the black.

I never said it was a girl! Both fins seem to be equal. The fish is mostly red on top, and silvery on the bottom. There are black areas as well. It kind of wiggles through the water, but seems healthy, and eats normally.

1. London shubunkins have stout bodies and short, rounded finnage that is similar to the common goldfish.

2. American shubunkins have a slimmer body shape than the london shubunkin with deeply forked, pointed tail fins, and longer finnage all around.

3. Bristol shubunkins are slim bodied goldfish with well-developed finnage possessing a tail that is large, moderately forked, and rounded at the end making a shape similar to that of the capitalized letter "B".

So, per this description, if you're comparing your London to an American, yes, its fins should seem "stunted." But, then again, it could just be one of those freaky genetic things goldies do too!
