Can someone please tell me what type of goldfish this called. When I bought it at the LFS it was listed as a Med. Black Ranchu, but I cannot find anything about it. Thanks.

Care should be the same as any other goldfish in any case.

But it does look like either a ranchu or a lionhead to me.

Thank you for the response, but do you know where can find some info on that kind of fish? I did a search and it didn't give me any results relating to the fish.

Yeah, it's a Ranchu or very closely related to one.
