All breeds of goldfish can breed with each other. Goldfish are egg-scatters, so even though they may look different the males can still scatter their sperm on the females eggs. But a male common might beat up a female fancy pretty badly. Goldfish get rough during spawning.

Two comets in a 50 gallon pond would probably be stunted. In a pond that small regular water changes should be done. Without those, there is probably some stunting due to an excess of hormones and nitrate.

It appears there can be single-tail fancy goldfish. I asked my goldfish breeder friends and they told me about a very rare breed from Japan called Sabao (or sometimes tamasaba). They basically appear to be single-tail ryukin goldfish.

If Sabao is a breed, I doubt that what this is.. If it happens as a fantail mutation, then maybe.
I don't know, I think it's a comet.

My mom said she changed some of the water every two weeks. but the fish is largely unfed. just did a real measurement of the tank it's a 100cmx80cmx40cm. which worked out to be roughly 75 gallons. minus a few gallons for plants gravel and what not, I'd say it's maybe around 65-70g @_@

for now I'm going to call it a single tail fantail. My grandma's tank is about a 200+ gallon giant pot with 6 fish in it about twice the size of our largest one. I'll take a closer look at them the next time I visit since ours are her fish's offsprings.

They look like comets with some sort of genetic problem. Well the first one does, the second one just looks small.

Hmmm ur right about the second one lookin small :/ they should be around 3 years old and I just read that they should be anle to reach 4 inches in 1 year, so this one probably should be tripe its current size by now. My grandma loves her goldfish, The top fellow might be the food hogger. When I showed my grandma that photo she was like " oh my goodness, why's she so fat?". lol
