Common goldfish are orange yet some do have a gold like color and those are selected to be sold as fancy goldfish.
well in French goldfish translates to "red fish" so I don't know which one is worse.
Maybe cause their scales are shiny.
i've had that thought too, but i dont question it for some reason
Possibly due to the light reflecting off the the fish that makes one think the fish is gold, but it's not due to the amount of light put into the fishes orange texture, making it supposedly brighter. It's also due to the fishes color mutations. They can range from red, orange, or supposedly gold, which is actually yellow.
the people who named it were colorblind
I think when light hits their scales they shine gold. I don't know.
No one knowsss.
