Additional Comments

Pearlscales are one of the 'cute' fancy goldfish, with their very rounded bodies and friendly nature. Pearlscales are so-named because many of their scales are convex, each scale looking like a pearly dimple. This variety first appeared in China in the 1920's. Suitable for indoor tanks and outdoor garden ponds (but provide protection from predators if kept outdoors.) May be out-competed for food if kept with fast types such as Comets.
