The Red Ryukin embodies the popular image of the fancy goldfish. Its classic red, orange, and gold coloration and flowing fins make the Red Ryukin familiar yet exotic. This pleasing quality makes the Red Ryukin a true favorite among hobbyists. The Red Ryukin, like all Ryukin goldfish, has a prominent arch or hump immediately behind the head. A curved backbone, a fat belly, long feathery fins, a pointed mouth, and a triangular body shape are other features that differentiate the Ryukin from other goldfish varieties.
