WOW! Thank you all for the very nice comments and complements on my new ranchus, I enjoy browsing pictures of everyones fish, so I'm glad I can share mine with you.
Thank you! I do treasure the new spot, along with the other fish stores that carry decent goldfish. They are few and far.
Hello Hyde, welcome, and thank you. I don't post frequently, but I am going to try to be a regular poster. The atmosphere is very friendly and fun here on kokos from what I've seen. Cant think of a better way to share our love of these fish.
These little ranchu are about 4" body size.
These are not the Chus you're looking for.
*waves hand in front of him*
The trade off to good fish stores, and decent access to imported goldfish, is a ridiculously high cost of living.
Definitely Sakura! My guess is that they will fade and keep the shiny scales. I would be completely thrilled if they darkened the black pigment like Tora, another tiger ranchu I saw on the forum.
Theyre in a grey sterilite tub for qt at the moment. Hopefully all goes well and ill post in tank shots in a few weeks. I'll try for some overhead shots this weekend.
Thank you fishtankbabe. Its a koi specialist shop called Eastern Nishikigoi, in westminster. They had some awesome pearlscales, butterflies, calico ryukin, and decent sized ranchu. Best part is discount when you buy two. Some fish were sick, ive come to expect that everywhere though.
Wow, I feel honored to have opened that change in perception. I hope you find a ranchu soon to call your own. I like all types of goldfish but my girlfriends favorite is the ranchu.
Lol from all the subtle and not so subtle mentions of theft I've seen n the board, my mantra is now 'lock the doors! The goldfish people are coming!'
