History and Physical Characteristics:
The Shubunkin, or Carassius Auratus, is a member of the goldfish family. The word Subunkin literally translates as "red brocade".
They originate from a cross between common goldfish and calico goldfish developed during the early 20th century in Japan. Today, Shubunkins are found in many water gardens worldwide.
Shubunkins are sometimes called the "poor man's koi" due to their similarity to some standard Koi coloration patterns, but really they are show stoppers in their own right. Shubunkins have a calico pattern which may include red, white, blue, grey, and black.
Their scales have a pearly appearance, due to the presence of both transparent and metallic scales.
Their base color is orange or blue with red, black, white, orange and blue metallic scales.
No two Shubunkins have the same color pattern!
They have a slender body and a single straight tail fin. They range in size from 1.5" to as large as 18".
Shubunkins are a very hardy fish, and can easily survive extended freezing temperatures as their metabolism slows down in cold weather.
