The crazy eyes of the Celestial Eye Goldfish are mounted on the top sides of its head and constantly gaze upward. This makes it perhaps one of the most unusual of all the goldfish varieties. The Telescope Goldfish with its extended eye stalks and the Bubble Eye Goldfish, which sports watery eyebags are a close second and third.
In general form and size the Celestial Goldfish is very similar to the Lionhead Goldfish but does not develop the Lionhead's characteristic jelly looking growth on its head.
The Celestial Goldfish has a curved contour shape to its back and twin tail fins. The caudal fin on this fish is quite similar to that of the Fantail Goldfish.
The Celestrial Goldfish comes in colors such as orange, black, yellow, bi color, tri color and calico.
