 Definition Common ancestor for most "fancy goldfish". Color is the only difference between the Common Goldfish and its ancestor, the Prussian Carp. [d] [e]

template is too bright

It should be dimmed down, and also color intensity should be less (more gray). (Chunbum Park 19:59, 11 September 2009 (UTC))

Is the goldenrod better than the gold? I'm trying to get some semblance of goldfish colors, so I don't want to stray to far from gold/orange. Drew R. Smith 01:10, 12 September 2009 (UTC)
Yes this is much better, although I'd prefer slightly more grey but slightly lighter version, resulting in slightly more metallic feel. (Chunbum Park 02:57, 12 September 2009 (UTC))

Ok, I'll see what I can do. The way the infobox template is coded one can use simple color names, like orange, gold, goldenrod, etc., or html colors, like #ffffff (white). I find it simpler to use the color names, but in order to get the color you're describing I would have to look up the html color. It should be fairly simple to find, but I just wanted to illuminate the reasoning behind the color choices. Drew R. Smith 04:08, 12 September 2009 (UTC)
Ok, I've tweaked it so its a little less bright, and a bit more metallic. I've added another color, but the overall color is the one you linked to. Drew R. Smith 05:05, 12 September 2009 (UTC)
What you did was very nice; the color is comfortable for the eyes. (Chunbum Park 07:21, 12 September 2009 (UTC))
