A fantail goldfish. Keep in mind that based on different countries(tastes) goldfish breeds can look different depending on where they were bred. Compared to this one many European strains would have shorter fins.

Just a point of info: If you consider purchasing a fantail or any goldfish for that matter, be sure that the fish is not deformed or mis-formed form the original type. Sub standard fish are being soled more and more due to the relatively cheap acquisition.
