odd eye telescope goldfish
« on: September 29, 2012, 06:06:14 PM »

i have a telescope eye called googles and only one eye is sticking out like a telescope eye and i was wondering if it is a problem. and he is also chasing the other fish particularly a fish called sooty he is a calico fantail and googles has been sticking his head into sooty s bottom I was wondering they might be mating Smiley PS. I have a pic of googles with my shubunkin bill below.

More photos would be helpful, I've never heard of a goldfish with one telescope eye? Could it be the illness 'pop eye'?
Info. about pop eye is here; (Link is not visible to guests. Please register to view.)

As for sticking his head into the others bum, that sounds much like breeding behaviour Wink From what I understand the males will harass the females to drop their eggs Smiley

Also, single tailed goldfish, like your shubunkin, will do better in a pond than in a tank with fancy goldfish. How big is it at the moment? Usually it's safe to upgrade them once they're 6 inches. I currently have a common goldfish that I'm looking after until it's big enough  to be moved Smiley

Not sure if I'll have a pond myself or if I'll re-home her elsewhere. The reason for ponds is because they grow much bigger than fancies (up to and sometimes over 1 foot in length) and they are much more active than fancies as well, they need lots of space for exercise Cheesy

Some telescope goldfish will have only one protruding eye if only one of their parents was a telescope and the other something else, like a fantail or oranda.
