    Well it's either eye fish or egg fish (not golf ball fish.) and I would think egg fish.

    It's the original Lionhead, used by the japanese and Chinese to develop some of the more popular varieties we enjoy today. Quite the history for a little carp that pleased the spirits of it's keeps so many centuries ago and even till today.....
