Has anyone ever had fantail goldfish that has had a single tail baby. Somehow I have a single tail goldfish that was born 2 years ago from fantails. Is this common?

Yup. Very common. Keep breeding that line non-selectively and you will eventually wind up with mostly green common goldfish. I've seen it happen in a farm pond.
