Is my new goldfish a Ranchu or Lionhead?

5 posts in this topic

I got him from my LFS, he was labeled as Lionhead goldfish but I think it's a Ranchu. How can you tell?

I think ranch have more of the curved back and a tucked tail whereas lion head have straighter ones. I the lines are often blurred with a lot of fish..... I'm no expert though and maybe someone else will have some more concise info. Cute fish though, congrats. :thumbs:
