I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Hmm, then a Ryukin is for you! There are some varieties of Ryukin that have long, flowing tails. Wait for Lupin to reply. I'm not that well-versed in fancy goldfish. I keep pond types.

Your fish love watching you as much as you love watching them. So please practice responsible fishkeeping.

You're looking for the veiltail varieties especially the Philadelphia veiltails. Some ryukins nevertheless look nice as well.

My possible longtail ryukin as there are four types of ryukins identified.





Butterfly tail.


Here are some broadtail ryukins.

Yes you can mix them.
The general rule is that there are two types: pond types (common, comet, shubunkin) and fancies (oranda, ryukin, fantail, lionhead, ranchu, black moor, etc.) Mixing fancies is okay. In fact, IMO it's even better since it adds variety to your tank.

Your fish love watching you as much as you love watching them. So please practice responsible fishkeeping.
