Here are some pretty poor quality photos of the new pearlschus as they settle in. The orange pearlchu has a few bumps and bruises from shipping but is active so I'm monitoring it. The sakura is big fish and a powerful swimmer; I’ve always had a soft spot for sakura ranchu. The little yellow pearlchu is somewhat younger than it’s two friends, at 2 months old, this fish came from Thai buffalo lines so I’m excited to see how it’s wen grows out. It was far too speedy for me to get any good picture of it this time, maybe once it warms up to me more. For anyone who isn’t aware these fish are not a cross of any kind, they are 100% ranchu, spawned from completely normal ranchu parents. However it has been shown that when you linebreed goldfish certain oddities can arise, and in ranchu you sometimes get these funky pearlscaled ranchu (which I have uncreatively called pearlchu). ECR and I happen to share a love of pearlscales, and she entrusted these little ones to me so that I can make my sole purpose in life showcasing how dang cute they are. To the best of my knowledge, these fish do not breed true. But overall I’m so stoked to own these guys; they’re definitely one of the coolest phenotype combos I’ve ever seen. (Also sorry for the watermarks, I've had a few images stolen recently and I don't want to take any chances)
