    My favourite types
    have always been the multi coloured shubunkin varieties
    I also like Fantail varieties for indoor set ups

    the classic kind, I'm all about function before form. They are the hardiest.

    The fancies are just too different for me.

    The shubukins and comets are very nice fish, but in my experience they go better in ponds then aquariums, because of there long finnage. I think it looks better from above then the side.

    I love the panda moors and ranchus. The bubbles are awesome too. I know, I love the genetically inferior ones ;p

    I like the look of the veiltail goldfish and the fantails, but I personally dislike goldfish for my tanks in general due to them being poo machines :cheesy:
