Why are goldfish expensive?
The more rare and exotic the color, the more expensive the fish will be. This is particularly true for metallic colors such as gold, platinum, and iridescent, all of which are prized by many collectors because of their rarity. Some goldfish are also bred to be albino, meaning they have no coloration at all.
