Yellow Wakin Goldfish
A very rare colour variation of Yellow! Often known as canary goldfish but this example is a twin tail. Unfortunately the polarizing lens used in pictures to reduce glare on the water does darken the yellow. It is much lighter in the scales.
Wakin are a variety of goldfish that displays the twin tail. Very common in Asia where the Wakin Goldfish is more common than our own single tail varieties. They are usually available in Red, red and white and sometimes calico. The are suitable for aquariums and ponds. The Wakin is one of the very few ‘fancy’ type goldfish suitable for ponds in the UK.
These are stunning little fish with strong Red and white patterns. They will happily mix with other common goldfish, Koi and other pondfish. Wakin goldfish are not commonly available in the UK.
