The goldfish is a very common aquarium fish. There are many types of goldfish, and they come in many sizes, shapes and colors. The origins of the goldfish go back to ancient China. The Asian carp was originally domesticated in ancient China for food. Generations later, a Chinese Empress ordered construction of a pond with red and gold varieties of these carp.
