The Pearlscale goldfish is one of the oddest and fun looking aquarium fish. They are also referred to as the Golfball Pearlscale or Ping-Pong goldfish. They have an unique body shape and scales not found in other goldfish.

Pearlscale goldfish scales appear like half pearls or hemispheres. Very attractive. Very unusual, and their belly is round, giving a "golf ball-like" appearance. The single dorsal fin contrasts to the other double fins. The tailfin, in particular, has split lobes to create a beautiful forked appearance that waves delicately in the water.

William Tricker (born 1853) started his commercial water lily culture in the United States in the late 1800's. He began experimenting with hybridizing water lilies and studied what helps their growth. The shape, colors and hardiness of his beautiful aquatic plants have withstood the test of time.

In the early 1890's, He earned a reputation as a leader in aquatice from hybridiing water lilies. His water lily nursery and company was formed in both Ohio and Pennsylvania and each were passed down to his family until the 1980's when Richard Lee purchased the Ohio company. In 1892, the first William Tricker mail-order catalog was mailed to customers across the nation.
