  1. Usually stabilizing hereditary black, to keep it from fading to chocolate or blue. You can't stop genetics from taking its course, but some have learned to slow it down. Thats why getting young fish is good, you get to enjoy the transitional phases.
  2. Fry are born bronze for camouflage from predators. Technically it's considered black, like BBR (black baby ranchu) uncolored. As the guanine fades from the scale, it becomes dull and a darker black. As guanine returns to the scale and skin underneath with maturity, the color and luster of the scale push the dull black out. Young fish with a lot of white after there initial color change may due this several times.
  3. Lucky ur not in Alaska, there's a large population of female Grizzly's that may take offense to that. Bet ur trash would never stay in the cans after that.
  4. Good lookin fish, especially like the blue in the first one, good classic calico color example
  5. Should name ur other chocolate oranda Grizzly, so together their Grizzly Bear
  6. Hey Hinfin, how are your fry from this summer coming along? Do you have a thread started for them anywhere here?
  7. I've had great luck with Cynthia at East Coast Ranchu. She's a lovely lady that helps any way possible. And buying from her, I know that the fish has had the upmost care prior to coming into my possession.
  8. I would take the approach of concern, usually the higher ups dont respond positively to aggression. How the commercial representation of these animals lead in most cases to demise. A fish in a bag or bowl is like letting a kitten or puppy live in a shoe box.
  9. Gorgeous work, can definitely tell all the care and work you put in by how beautiful both your tank and fish are. Thanks for letting us enjoy them with you.
  10. I like how the orange has filled in, and the color has become so vibrant on Dottie
  11. Those are some awesome fish, I have one from a LFS. I wanted one for exp and grooming exercise. This is Buddha the day I brought him home I try to get a current pic on here soon
  12. Maniac was listed as Show Quality, I'm hoping to breed him with the Jade Cap, her name is Brainiac. Ice , the calico with that nice blue was a LFS find. Thanks again Lis.
  13. Thank you, yeah the first 3 are, the 3rd one is the ranchu she used for the door hanger.
  14. Ah, Kulukan, your not missin much. Pics aren't very good. I see people take great pics with there phone. I must be too slow.
  15. You can see the developing hood, of course it looks better in person http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah318/fryeguy81/F2B9981B-3BE5-4F52-B611-DD533AFE1718_zps5rx65ees.jpg
  16. I got a strange look from the sales lady, a big bearded fella going Ooo! I want that one! Like a kid once I saw the decent little hood on such a small fish.
  17. As my wife and kids stumbled thru the mall getting school ready, Dad had strategically slide into a chain pet store to find http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah318/fryeguy81/A587E51D-C6A5-4EE5-BCD9-91CD09C4449B_zpsm6rowcpa.jpg A nice calico crown pearlscale! The molding bump next to him is about the size of a nickel, so he/she's a tiny one. I try to get a good side view to see the hood already developing nicely. Good fins, upright dorsal, I think great color. Got lucky for my first pearlscale. I have only had ranchu, so does anyone have any advice or tips for developing the hood and good body on my new CP? It would be greatly appreciated. Also, I dont have any Prazi, where is a good site to order some here in the States? Thanks for lookin
  18. Minor fungal infection, fungal QuickCure will probably do the trick
  19. She's a great lookin fish, I was hoping for some Frye's Fry soon (my last name is Frye, oh yeah, growing up with that is fun). But I got to get my girl better. Like i said, she acts fine, but I don't want the condition any worse.
  20. http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah318/fryeguy81/5ACB99B2-603F-4E59-A6A5-E65B26A644A9_zpsxbm9afnd.jpg
