Unless this is a single-caudal pearlscales (which I doubt so), I believe it is suffering from dropsy or some bloating problem.

Care to elaborate why u think it doesn't look dropsy?

A big possibility of a mix between a koi & a pearlscale. Look closely.......the structure of the body from front view has a stomach structure of a pearlscale. Sideview shows pretty similar signs together with a strong koi-like tail.

Can some hobbyist in NZ pls win that fish? biggrin.gif

If it is indeed what's being claimed, then 51NZD to buy a record-breaking fish is worth it!! good_very.gif

Sad.... Auction has ended because the fish is dead. cry.gif

I guess the cause is quite obvious.
