Do you like having an aquarium full of variety of fish or a just a small bowl with a goldfish on it? Speaking of goldfish, here is something you should know and you might want one in your aquarium...

Ryukin is not your ordinary goldfish. It is a "translucent fish" created by Japanese scientists. The very reason why they created this is to eliminate dissecting. So if you found dissecting animals at your science class, you must be very thankful. This goldfish has an invisible scale, you can see its brain, heart and other internal organ while its alive. Isn't its amazing?! Ryukin goldfish was made by picking mutant hatchery goldfish with pale skin and breeding them together. This see-through fish will live 20 years and grow up to 10 inches long.
