The telescope eye, demekin, or moor is a fancy goldfish characterized by its protruding eyes. It is also known asglobe eye or dragon eye goldfish.
Except for its enlarged projecting eyes, the demekin is similar to the ryukin. It has a deep body and long flowing fins. Demekins are available in red, red-and-white, calico, black-and-white, chocolate, blue, lavender, chocolate-and-blue and black coloration. They may either have metallic or nacreous scales. Telescope eyes can grow quite large. Due to the telescope eye's poor vision, it should not be mixed with more active goldfish varieties, and should not be housed in an aquarium with sharp or pointed objects.
