Your Wacken is amazing! Is he/she a ranchu/ryukin hybrid?

I estimate that she's around 10 months to a year old.

I'm not sure if she's a hybrid or not, what makes you see ranchu in her? I'm curious. ^^ lol

Thanks you guys! She's my pride and joy <3

I'm not sure. It's just that the way the dorsal is positioned makes me think it's a hybrid.

i was just discussing with Alex, and we thought to be a hybrid.. i am more inclined having referenced the book "Goldfish Guide" to think you have a Japanese Wakin.

what differs the Japanese Wakin from others is the slightly raised back and slightly shorter body, which yours seems to display. the pelvic, anal and dorsal fins all resemble the typical Wakin on all counts.

so, with a good, regular diet that includes lots of protein (and your fish displays far from starving :wub: ) i don't see why that hump would not be marginally bigger again :)

so, my vote is that your fish is a beautiful Japanese Wakin :)

Looks like a short tail Ryukin that are all over the Asian transship lists these days.

I don't see Wakin here. Too short in length, too tall in depth, to round of a back.

If she was a wakin what size tank would she need? I've only ever seen pictures of long bodied wakins. Thanks for the help!
