The first goldfish bred from the gibel carp is the common, however, second in line was the comet. The common has round tail fins and a rounded nose as well. The comet has a pointed tail with a pointed nose to match

Comets have become much more common than the commons. People seem to be more attracted to them than the common goldfish. We sometimes refer to them as fair fish, due to the fact, you can win them as prizes. Comets also experience longer lifespans than the fancy variety. 

We also refer to them as feeder fish. Cheap to buy at twenty five cents, people buy them as live food for carnivorous fish
