Breed description

Riukin is a selection form of a goldfish. Many researchers believe that it was from Riukin that the Japanese voiletail and orana subsequently originated.
This fish has a short form, but at the same time has a rather large size and can reach twenty centimeters in length. The distinctive features of the breed include the elevation of the back, which immediately behind the fish’s head forms a peculiar hump. Riukin color is very diverse, but most often you can see fish of red, silver and black colors. The most common are riukins red, calico and red-white. The tail of the fish of this breed forked and reaches a fairly large size.

Common symptoms of diseased fish

The condition of the fish is easily determined by their mobility and the brightness of their color. In addition, signs of health are luster scales and appetite. Another “indicator” is the dorsal fin. A healthy fish always keeps it strictly vertically.
All goldfish do not have too many diseases. But if the pet is still ill, it should be immediately transferred to a spacious insulator, approximately 50 liters in volume, and treated. However, it should be remembered that after any treatment, as a manufacturer, the individual will be lost, since antibiotics and other chemically strong drugs contribute to the infertility of fish.
If seabed in the form of semolina has formed on the fish, or formations similar to cottonballs have appeared, or gluing of the fins is noticeable, and the fish itself swims in jerks, rubs against objects, it has impaired breathing and red fins, it should be immediately isolated.
The most common diseases are dermatomycosis and gastroenteritis.


This is a fungal disease of freshwater fish. Most often it affects individuals whose body is already weakened as a result of some illness, injury or poor conditions.
In this disease, thin strings of white color appear on the body of the fish, on the fins and gills, which grow perpendicularly from the body. If at this moment the cause of the disease is not eliminated, the threads will quickly develop into a cotton-like bloom. The fungus grows into the muscles and internal organs of the fish, as a result of which it becomes inactive and lies on the bottom.
In the initial stages of the disease can be suspended. To do this, in a separate aquarium, dilute the 5% solution of salt and "bathe" the fish in it for 5 minutes. You should also increase the temperature of the water and increase its aeration.
In addition, it is necessary to determine the cause of the disease. If this is the wrong content of fish, it should be dramatically improved. But if ringworm is only a consequence of another disease, you must immediately begin to eliminate the original disease.
Treatment of ringworm can be carried out in the general aquarium. Copper sulfate, potassium permanganate, and main purple K are recommended as common drugs. When using branded drugs, Fungus Cure from Aquarium Pharmaceuticals, INC, Sera mycopur, Sera ectopur, Sera acutan, Tetra General Tonic Plus and Tetra Medica FungiStop showed themselves well. The above means follow the manufacturer's instructions.


This disease has a second name - inflammation of the stomach. It occurs when goldfish are overfedged with poor-quality food, as well as when fed uniformly with dried daphnia, gammarus and bloodworms.
Sick fish does not lose their appetite and eats well for a very long time. But at the same time its activity decreases. The individual has a slightly swollen belly and an anus reddens, and the excrement becomes filiform and contains bloody mucus.
But the disease is easily treatable by simple fasting during the week. The diseased fish should be transferred to a separate aquarium with fresh water, to which a weak solution of potassium permanganate is added. It is also necessary to increase the aeration of water and raise its temperature by about 2-3 degrees.

Voilehvost, or riukin
voiletail, riukin, goldfish, photo, photo Veiltail (riukin, plume tail) is one of the most common species of goldfish.
It has a short, high round or egg-shaped body and "expressive" eyes. The head is quite big. There are forms of voilehvostov with scales and without it. The color of the fish is very different - from monotone golden to bright red and black.

The spotted veils of the tails are very beautiful, their fins and body are colored in different tones. The double caudal and anal fins are highly elongated, thin, almost transparent. The main attraction of the fish is a long tail, consisting of two, sometimes three or four intergrown fins, forming folds and hanging like a veil. There are descriptions of veils, in which the size of the caudal fin is six times the length of the body.
Unlike a goldfish and a comet, voilehvosts are more demanding in terms of keeping and breeding. They need very spacious high aquariums with clean water (the salt composition of its great value does not matter). In the vessel there should be no fish that could grab the tail tips for the fins. It is best to contain only ornamental species of goldfish in one aquarium. Water temperature 20-22 C.
Modern standards for voile fish have changed little compared with the standards of the beginning of the century.
There are certain requirements for the veiltails displayed at exhibitions: the height of the dorsal fin must be equal to the height of the body, the minimum ratio of tail length and body length is 5: 4, the length of the ventral fins must be 3/5 of the tail length. The bend line of the back should smoothly pass into the tail line, the tail fin itself should have the form of a plume that falls gracefully downwards. The dorsal fin, except for a sufficient height, must have such rigidity that the fish can constantly keep it unfolded.
