This Telescope Goldfish is known for its characteristic bulging eyes, which develop after about a month and can take up to three months to fully protrude. As a result, selecting a good specimen is of utmost importance, with large, protruding, and symmetrical eyes being the ideal characteristics. Moreover, the fish’s eyes should be free of any deformities or discolorations. Furthermore, their eyes should be of equal size and protrusion.

The Celestial Eye is a marvel of modern-day fish keeping. It’s distinctive features, such as large, bulged eyes, and the absence of a dorsal fin, make it an eye-catching fish with a unique look. This fish was first documented in 1870 and has been a favorite among aquarists ever since. Its resilience has allowed it to thrive in a wide variety of water conditions and aquariums. Additionally, its docile nature makes it a great addition to any aquarium.

All goldfish are members of the carp group and are generally quite hardy. The Telescope Goldfish will do well in a 30 gallon or larger tank with a fine gravel bottom and hardy, cold water plants. Goldfish are diggers and will scatter the fine sand onto leaves, injuring thin and less hardy plants. Roots and well-rounded river rocks are a good addition to the aquarium.
