Most streamlined fancy goldfish

Out of all the "fancies" (I mean no comets, no shubunkins, no wakins, etc....you know what I mean) which one has the most streamlined body?

5G - 1 betta: orange dalmatian VT male "Ty"
29G - 1 orange fantail goldfish "Goldeen"

Streamline and fancy goldfish is an oxymoron but some of the Fantail lines and some Dragoneye lines can be fairly streamline.

You probably know it by another name.
"The telescope eye, demekin, or moor is a fancy goldfish characterized by its protruding eyes. It is also known as globe eye or dragon eye goldfish"
According to google.

They're all fat. Some get too much to eat and become REALLY fat.

By the way, the more streamline they are the bigger they will be, because of the nature of their deformity. I love goldfish, but that's what those fish are - deformed.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta
