Veiltail Telescope Butterfly - Carassius auratus auratus
These beautiful diurnal long-finned Veiltail Telescopic Butterfly Goldfish (Carassius auratus auratus) are variously colored - orange black pied, for example. The bipartite veil-shaped caudal fin can vary in size depending on the fish, and the other fins are also veil enlarged. Telescopic veiltail Telescopic Butterfly Goldfish have the namesake enlarged eyes and a rather stocky body shape. These carp fish were bred from the Chinese silver crucian carp and originated in China. Adult Veiltail Telescope Butterfly Goldfish can reach a length of about 20-25 cm in the garden pond as well as in the aquarium.
Because this breeding form of goldfish is more heat-dependent than other varieties of goldfish, you should not overwinter your Veiltail Telescope Butterfly goldfish in the garden pond, no matter how deep it is. A large unheated aquarium, which you set up cold but frost-free, is well suited. The water temperature should be at least 13 °C.
Veiltail Telescope Butterfly Goldfish are sociable fellows and should therefore be kept in a group of at least 5. Also other goldfish colors or fin shapes are recognized as conspecifics. The garden pond should have at least 4 cubic meters volume for such a group. Make sure that the pond is placed in partial shade, so that the water temperature does not rise too high in summer. Up to 24 °C is optimal as pond temperature.
Veiltail Telescope Butterfly Goldfish are not very picky omnivores, and they are very happy to take care of the larvae of pesky mosquitoes in the pond. They also enjoy eating other insect larvae, worms, and small crustaceans, and will also pick at algae cover, dying plants, and water plants with soft foliage.
If your goldfish pond is not overly stocked, you may not need to feed at all. In more crowded ponds, however, it is a good idea to feed your goldfish a high quality goldfish food. Please feed only as much food as your fish can eat within about five minutes. This way you avoid a high water pollution of the pond water. When water temperatures are high in the summer, an oxydator for garden ponds, a water bubbler or a water feature can bring additional oxygen into the water of your goldfish pond.
You can breed the Goldfish in the garden pond or in a breeding aquarium. Spawning season begins in the spring, as soon as water temperatures rise. Female goldfish spawn in open water. The spawn is fertilized by the male as it sinks. Veiltail Telescope Butterfly goldfish predate on both spawn and fish larvae just like all other goldfish in the garden pond. Therefore, reproduction in a deep pond is rather slow. If your pond has a well-planted shallow water zone, the chances of survival for the offspring are much better. Here, the small Butterfly Goldfish will find cover and food and can grow to a size in peace and quiet, where the older Goldfish will no longer chase them.
Young Veiltail Butterfly Goldfish are largely solid dark in color. They do not develop their pattern until they are about 24 months old. Veiltail Telescopic Butterfly Goldfish can live a proud 20 to 40 years if kept well in a garden pond.
