The Bubble Eye Goldfish is a special type of fancy goldfish that stands out with its eyes pointing upward and two fluid-filled sacs. This fish doesn't have a dorsal fin, and the quality of a good one is judged by the matching color and size of its eye bubbles. The bubbles are delicate, and if they get punctured, it can lead to injuries and infections, although they can regrow.
This fish has an evenly curved back, lacks a dorsal fin, and has metallic scales similar to the celestial eye goldfish. Its eyes start normal but develop bubbles three months after hatching. The Bubble Eye Goldfish grows to about 3 to 4 inches in length. There are variations with different body shapes, scales, and even four eye sacs instead of two due to selective breeding.
Taking care of Bubble Eye Goldfish requires a tank free from sharp objects to prevent injuries to their delicate eye sacs. Due to their visual impairment, it's recommended to keep them with other bubble eyes or compatible breeds to ensure fair competition for food. Interestingly, researchers in Japan are exploring potential medical uses of the fluid in their eye sacs, suggesting it might stimulate cell growth, and they can extract it periodically for study.
