Reproduction

Breeds in Spring as water temperatures start to increase. Scatters adhesive eggs amongst plants, the adults will prey on the eggs and fry if they find them. First foods for the fry include freshwater plankton (in ponds), or fry foods such as Vinegar Eels and Fry powder food (if raising in tanks).

Omnivorous. Eats all normal foods, including aquatic plants.

 

Additional Comments

Sometimes called Stargazer, the Celestial is an excellent example of how selective breeding has led to a highly unusual looking form of fancy Goldfish. The Celestial was developed in China at about the end of the nineteenth century. Best kept with other slower moving Goldfish types, so that it is not out-competed for food.
