LOL. This is a champion goldfish? I don't think I'd want it in my tanks. xD

That is really gross to breed a fish into that :/ It can't move at all.

That poor thing. I don't care about stupid show standards - breeding them like that is absolutely barbaric.

I don't even want to know how uncomfortable that fish must be for 100% of it's life.

I saw a documentary on Manuel, he actually got much better without getting lipo surgery done, and got married. :)

The goldfish in the first video is a pearlscale. Yes. They are actually breed to be inflated like that. Not exactly to my taste but some find them endearing. I actually find most show-winning goldfish to be unattractive. Ryukin are my favorite, but I don't like the huge hump that a lot of show fish have. I'd rather mine have just a little bump.

Most of the pearlscale I've seen aren't that inflated, but they still have a golfball-sized (and shaped) body.

I like goldies, but looking at these ones I prefer the "pet store quality" ones lol. This little guy looks like he's blind from his head.. thing..

I really just find it crazy how people have managed to take the breeding this far.

The wen on that little guy is a little too large. I've seen orandas that had the wen actually grow over the eyes. A vet had to go in and cut some of it out. I'd like to get a redcap oranda, but I'm afraid of the wen getting too large and holding the fish back. Even the ones in the pet store can have huge wens if fed right.
