Finally got around to taking pictures of my cute ranchu from East Coast Ranchu. They are doing so well and are going out in the pond soon! the pictures are a bit poor because I don't have my preferred image editing software on this computer. The bf chose WWII plane names as the theme for these guys!

First off the sakura! I've named him Spitfire

He has amazing colors and already quite a wen!

The soon to be lemonhead: Bearcat

He has the best chubby cheeks and a fantastic topline. After I picked him out me and Cynthia noticed he had a little antennae on his caudal that is nearly invisible from above. I wanted him regardless, he's just too perfect!

And last but not least, the calico Zero

He is much shyer than the others in front of the camera but he has the coolest markings for a calico, plus he's a full matte which I just love. He doesn't have a ridiculous amount of wen like the others but he's going to grow to be a stunner I'm sure.

I also want to take the time to thank cynthia from east coast ranchu for being so kind to let me into her home to choose my fish. It was probably the best buying experience I could've had and seeing the excellent health and conditions her fish are kept in is really refreshing. I'll be posting an in depth review of her on my fish blog (on tumblr) if anyone is interested.Thanks for looking guys!

Awwww. I love them all, but especially Bearcat. I think I also a have twin to Spitfire here. :)

the one with the one eye? They look very similar:) I would be inclined to say your calico is a sibling of mine as well. :hi5

Yup yup! :rofl

Awwww! :D

I love the theme for their names, MK. Also, a "herd of ranchu" just sounds so appropriate! I think this should be the official name for groups of ranchu. :teehee

Cynthia is in nj! About a two hour drive from where I live. It's an awfully small world!

These guys went out in the pond today and honestly I'll really miss having them inside! Their weights were spitfire(23g), bearcat(21g), and zero(15g). I have some more pictures of them from today that I will post soon. :)

They are all beautiful. Hard to decide which one I liked the best. So I'm going to say; All of them. :heart

That must have been really fun to go to Cynthia's and personally see and choose which one's you wanted to take home. If I had a pond I think I would have a hard time putting them in it instead of enjoying them in the comfort of inside one's home.

This is Cynthia's page! you can message her with the amount of fish you want and your color preference to order them. I'm not sure of the exact process because I just contacted her and then drove on over to pick mine out! haha!
