Calico Goldfish

The Calico Goldfish are beautiful fish that are almost always speckled or have a variegated colour pattern. However, what makes the Shubunkin's appearance unique is not their wild calico patterning, but their blue colour. Blue is a colour that is quite rare in goldfish. The Shubunkin are called Chuwen-chin in China. But in Japan, where they were probably developed in about 1900, they are called Shubunkin, and this is the name that they are known by throughout the western world.

Calico Goldfish can have many colours in its patterning, which has led to it often being referred to as the Calico Goldfish. These colours include yellows, oranges, reds, browns, blacks, purples, greys, and whites, all set on a blue background. Other descriptive names for this fish are Speckled Goldfish, Coronation Fish, and Harlequin Goldfish. The blue colouring is quite rare, which makes the Shubunkin a more valuable goldfish.

Goldfish are very social animals and thrive in a community. Not only are they a great community fish, but they are great scavengers as well. It is really not necessary to add other scavengers or other bottom feeders to the aquarium when you have goldfish. Like most fancy goldfish, they will thrive in both freshwater and tropical aquariums as long as there are no aggressive or territorial fish in the tank. Some good tank mates for fancy goldfish are the Chinese Blue Bitterling and the Northern Redbelly Dace.
