Comet Goldfish

Carassius auratus


Profile notes:

The Comet goldfish is ideal for novice goldfish keepers since it is tough and adaptable and do not require a lot of pampering to do well. It can be kept in outdoor ponds as well as in big cold water aquariums.The Comet goldfish can grow quite big as an adult and a length of 14 inches is not uncommon.

 

There exists several different variants of the Comet goldfish, but they all have long and slender bodies and a big and elongated single tail fin. The large tail fin gives the Comet goldfish a very stylish streamlined body shape.

 

The name Comet is probably derived from how they resemble comets in the sky with long and flowing tails. You can find multicolored Comet goldfish variants as well as specimens with single colored bodies.
