RAIN GARDEN ORNAMENTALS

RAIN GARDEN ORNAMENTALS

You will see these called 'pompon', 'pompom' or 'pom pom'.  The pom pom protrusions are also called narial bouquets and velvety balls.  In all goldfish, the nasal membrane has many folds to increase its surface and improve sensory perception.  It is not uncommon for some of the nasal membrane to protrude from the nasal opening and this small protrusion can be seen on many goldfish.  Pom pom goldfish, on the other hand, have greatly enhanced nasal membranes which protrude from the nasal opening as a large round tuft, reminiscent of a cheerleader's pom poms.  The fluffy texture lead to the name 'velvety balls'. 

Pom poms are more of a characteristic than a variety.  They are found on many celestials and such fish are simply called 'pompom celestials'.  An egg fish without a dorsal is usually just called a pom pom.  If it has a dorsal it may be called a 'pom pom oranda' or a 'hanafusa'.  There are also pom pom telescopes.

All of these goldfish were born on our farm, each one is different and the individual in the photos is the individual you receive.  To order, just send an e-mail to Goldfish@RainGarden.US and let us know the item number to the left of the photos.  To the right of the photos, you will see a column with the price of the fish.  Farther to the right is a separate column with the shipping cost for one or more fish of that variety and size.  We will confirm the shipping cost when responding to your e-mail.
