Look here for information about the different fancy goldfish varieties, how to keep them, and how to breed them. Our site provides the most comprehensive suite of photographs of Western goldfish varieties available either on the Internet or in books, a survey of Far Eastern varieties seldom seen in the West, and background information on the history and physical features of goldfish.
Come and see our annual show! You will see a great variety of goldfish of the highest quality. You will be able to meet BAS members and goldfish breeders from all the major UK goldfish societies, who will be only too willing to discuss the hobby, and you will be able to buy goldfish of many varieties at the auction, which is open to all.
The show is on Sunday 1st September; see our Events page for more information and a map of how to get there.
