The Shubunkin is a type of single-tailed goldfish, and is a mutation of the Comet Goldfish.
They have an appearance more towards a Common Goldfish, in that their body is thinner and more streamlined, as well as it has a dorsal fin and large tail fins. The colorings and markings make this a unique goldfish, perfect for your pond setup.
Feed the Shubunkin a quality pellet or flake food that does not exceed 30% protein.
