Top view shots of one of my oranda pairs

Hi guys,

Long time lurker here and thought I would share some goldfish pics to kick things off. Any comments on these fish would be appreciated :)

Thanks LauLanChu, will do.
Could you please provide a more in depth comments/analysis on this fish regarding it's positive and negative aspects? (standard, body, fins, wen etc.)
That would be much appreciated

I can only judge oranda from the side. Based on the motionless picture of one of the fish I think it has nice curve, peduncle a bit thin and slightly overfed. Finage wise tail spread may not be enough. The headgrowth could be limited but I could be wrong as they are young fish.

Hi LauLanChu, can you please explain a little bit of what you mean by a thin peduncle? Would you have any clear photos to show what a thin and thick peduncle is?
Also, what do you mean by the tail not being spread enough? I thought their tail set was really wide spread hence why it is really spread out when you look from above :shock: :?:
Agree the headgrowth is limited so will need to work on it when breeding.

Here are some additional side view shots for better judgement

Again, appreciate your comments

The peduncle size and width w.r.t the body size cannot be too small and thin. This would also represent growth potential. For the tail spread preference to open out like an arc instead of a triangular scissor shape.

Thanks LauLanChu, I can definitely see what you're talking when it comes to the arc for the tail spread ;)
Just to clarify on the peduncle, for the width that you are talking about, where exactly are you looking at to judge? I've provided a pic below - please let me know which one is correct

Will be going goldfish hunting so trying to soak as much information regarding selecting quality fish as I can ;) Unfortunately, high quality goldfish in most shops in Australia are hard to come by so will need to be buying 'seeds' or fish that have potential

Both, when view from top is thick and when view from side is broad.
