US Bred Baby Broadtail Moors

Online forums like Goldfish Keepers can be a great place to network with other goldfish hobbyists and breeders to find some really great fish!  Plus, supporting small hobby breeders also helps keep the hobby vibrant and strong.  I got a group of 7 beautiful Broadtail Moor Goldfish from Amy Shonka and I love them!  Can't wait to share with you as they grow and develop.



These are different from the fish I normally keep and breed.  My main (and favorite) variety is the butterfly telescope.  The butterfly telescope has little to no forking in the caudal fin lobes and a horizontally spread tail that resembles the outstretched wings of a butterfly when viewed from above.  These Broadtail Moors also have little to no forking in their caudal fin lobes, but their tail is a broadtail or veiltail type as opposed to a butterfly type.  This means that the tail lobes are not spread out horizontally.  Their fins are also very long in relation to their body size.
