The Comet Goldfish is also called the Comet-tail Goldfish or Pond Comet. This fish was the first variety of single-tail goldfish to be developed with a long caudal (tail) fin. It was developed in the United States from the Common Goldfish in the early 19th century, presumably by Hugo Mullert of Philadelphia, who then introduced them in quantity into the market.

These fish can be quite personable and are delightful to watch. They are some of the most graceful of the elongated goldfish, and this quality is emphasized by their long tails. They are active, rapid swimmers and tend to leap out of the water occasionally, so having a lid on an aquarium is a good idea. They are also very social and thrive well in a community tank
