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.

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.
