BOY WITH GOLDFISH IN HIS HANDS

As far as I remember, I had always been interested in goldfish. As I got to know more about them, my interest has narrowed down to verieties lacking the dorsal fin. Among which are commonly known "lionhead", "celestial" and "bubble" eye. Ultimately, my dream fish became Japanese top view ranchu, a type of "lionhead" goldfish that was developed in Japan to be viewed from above.
