The Telescope Goldfish are believed to have been first developed in China in the early 1700s when they were named the Dragon Eye Goldfish or Dragon fish. Later in that century, in Japan. Through selective breeding of Tosakins and Ryukins (in China in the 1700s), the “(Telescope Eye goldfish) was produced. The telescope eye arrived in western countries for sale in the 1850s.
