The goldfish (Carassius auratus auratus), and related variants such as the red crucian carp (Carassius auratus red var.), are popular freshwater aquarium fish. These domesticated fish are related to the less colorful carp (Carassius auratus) that is native to east Asia. In China, these fish have been domesticated and reared for More...
