Goldfish were originally cultivated in China over 1000 years ago, and over the centuries, have been developed into many different types all over the world. The Red Fantail Goldfish is one of the many subspecies of Goldfish that have been bred to enhance certain qualities. 

Red Fantail Goldfish have a distinctive fan-shaped tail with four lobes, which appears triangular when viewed from above, and a round, egg-shaped body. Their shining orange-red scales, combined with their distinctive tails, make Red Fantail Goldfish an attractive, impressive showpiece for your aquarium. 

Red Fantail Goldfish make peaceful tankmates, and are traditionally a schooling fish that do well when kept in small groups rather than solo. Being in a group will help protect them from bullies and keep their beautiful flowing tails safe from little nippers.

These cold water fish thrive in water temperatures ranging from 8-23 degrees celsius, and as they produce lots of waste, we recommend good filtration and plenty of plants to oxygenate and clean the water, as well as enriching their lives and supplementing their diets.
