Beautiful animals must fit on at least three of these categories:
1. Wild
2. Exotic
3. Colorful
4. From the tropical rainforest
5. Makes loud but pleasant noises
6. Have long necks and/or legs
7. Aquatic/marine
8. Have "frill-like" extensions
Examples: Peafowl, okapi, parrots, giraffe, jaguar, maned wolf, sea swallow, horse

Beautiful animals are different from cute animals, such as puppies, kittens and chicks.
Non-beautiful animals such as tortoises and crows can still be pleasing to look at.

Now, don't go calling any animal that you like to look at "beautiful".

Those fish are dysgenic and should not be bred. Creating deformed animals for the sake of fancy is pretty much animal abuse.

>>2058136
But I like them

Get taste.

Goldfish are beautiful though. The number of types and styles are endless.

The wren did fulfill three of your criteria, but I feel that it should fulfill more of them, considering how gorgeous they are.

It's like a school of jellyfish.
Very majestic imo

You're criteria is stupid. An animal is beautiful when it's beautiful, that's it.
>>
>>2058418
Do those sacs ever pop?
>>
>>2058439
Yes, and quite easily. When they do they eventually regrow, but the fish will have gotten a severe infection by then.
>>
>>2058418
Wild fish are prettier, more varied and built to survive.
There's no excuse to breed miserable inbred goldfish.
>>
>>2058446
Want a puffer but don't want the hassle of a saltwater tank? No problem.

They're cute. It's like a little tangerine wearing a hat swimming around the tank.

So for you looks are everything, even if it affects the animal's health and well being.

You are no better than a person who kills animals for fun.

How are they unhealthy? Aesthetically they may not be pretty to you but they are to me. There's no reason to hate them.
>>
>>2058601
Fancy goldfish lifespan is half that of a normal goldfish kept in a pond. The ones with the telescope eyes or eye sacks are even worse.
>>
>>2058601
Are you asking how a inbred lineages of goldfishes are unhealthy? Are you really asking that?

I could care less if they were ugly but healthy. They are suffering in those diseased bodies.
>>
>>2058606
But they aren't diseased. You're misusing the word because you don't like the goldfish.
>>
>>2058607
They are inbred to hell and back. So yes, diseased.
>>
>>2058608
Again, misusing the word because of your dislike of the fish.

All captive animals have been inbred. It's called selective breeding.
>>
>>2058609
No, not every captive animal is subject to selective breeding. Only the ones polymorphic enough, which most aren't. Also selective breeding doesn't imply inbreeding, especially if it is done by someone with a brain.

Either way, enjoy your suffering inbred meatbag, cucklord.

Precisely.

No such thing as a meme bird.

Cockatoos are kinda meme though.
