Here are the goldfish in my pond. Sadly, I haven't named my fish yet. The white one on the top and the one in the center are wakins, who are the largest and most mellow of my fish. They usually swim at a slow and relaxed pace but when it's feeding time, they zip around matching the speed of the single-tailed goldies.
The one nearest the bottom of the picture is a common goldfish. He's the smallest, but also the most voracious eater. (though it seems he's caught up in size with the shubinkins) He loves green leafy veggies the most, agressively ripping them to shreds.
The on on the left not fully in the picture is another common. As the first goldfish I bought for the pond, he used to think the whole pond is his. This led him to severely harass the wakins when they first arrived. This forced me to put him in the 15-gallon and make him stay there for three days. I rearranged the plants before I put him back in the pond and it did wonders for his temperament, probably because he thinks he's the new fish now. He's now more mellow, but he still shows his bossy side every now and then, but it's not as bad as before.
The other one on the left is a shubunkin. Well, he's one of the "normal fish", though when I took out the agressive one for a while, he seems to have climbed up the pecking order, being another old-timer. But his chasing is much more tolerable, since it's not that persistent.
Not in the picture, is my other shubunkin. I think it's female since it doesn't chase the others at all. Her scale coloration is similar to the other shubunkin, but I consider her more beautiful, since there are more black and "blue" scales and the tail is somewhat longer, already similar to a comet's. She's the shyest fish, rarely hanging out with the others except during and a little after feeding time.
