or too small?
You have an interesting fish.
i hope i did not give a wrong impression that "the eyes must be or meet a certain size". Basically, there is no right or wrong size, importantly the pair of eyes have to balance (or near balance). And also the eye should remain healthy throughout. Eyes that are not "exaggerated protruding" and strike a balance with the body size, it should consider a 'good' eye size.

Back to your photo, yes, i would say for a 'rough' guide, this is a good size.
:) :) :)
(Unfortunately, the eyes seem not balance from this photo)

newbie from USA question about dragon eye classification

Post by Dragon_eye » Sun Apr 04, 2010 10:42 am

First of all, Hi everybody from Florida, USA.
I've been looking all over the internet about a definition of dragon eye goldfish. Everywhere I read, it says dragon eye is just another term for telescope eye goldfish. To me, I think it is not true. I have a couple of goldfish with eyes that look truly like a dragon's eye and then other telescope goldfish that have normal coloring and then still others that look like they have dark frog eyes.

Does anybody know of any standards? I was going to publish a webpage but I wanted to get some expert's opinions. forgive me if this is already covered somewhere else.

please provide input.

First welcome to this site. Your question is indeed very details and alot of people has oversighted. From what I know here we don't have such details differentiation, and you are right, everything being grouped under dragon eyes which we also called telescope eyes.

Probably wolverine can comment as he has indepth study of this.

dragon eye specifications

Post by Dragon_eye » Mon Apr 05, 2010 12:50 am

just as all goldfish are fish, but not all fish are goldfish. I feel the same about telescope eye and dragon eye goldfish.

telescope eyes just mean they protrude from the head. globe eyes mean they protrude more like a globe than a common telescope.

dragon eyes should look like the eye of a dragon. why else would you call them that?

Yes I would agree. Dragon eyes are a specific type of telescope.
The iris of the eye must be clear gold or silver-- like a dragon's.
