ABSTRACT
Goldfish, an ornamental fish related to the carp. Goldfish range from 2 to about 18 inches (5 to 45 cm) in length. They were developed in China hundreds of years ago from a brown carplike fish. Many exquisite gold, red, white, bronze, black, and mottled varieties have been developed by the Japanese. Among the unusual varieties are the trailing-finned Celestial, with bulging eyes at the top of its head; and the yellow-gold Lionhead, which has a scarlet head.
