My tiniest Baby

Recommended Posts

Some of you might remember that I yet again had fry late last year. I kept a small number and the rest is up for adoption.

 

Amongst those I kept is this single fancy goldfish that was produced in that spawn - while all the others are comets, Japanese shubunkins and a couple London shubunkins.

That one fancy looks like a ranchu without wen, and this fish is suuuper tiny. He is a cross of a female lionhead and one of two male shubunkins.

 

At the time I took the pics (a few weeks back) , this guy was eight months old! Now I know that fish grow at different rates and growth depends on their genes, so I am not worried or concerned. I am rather amused and in a strange way delighted by his (or her) petiteness. 

 

Keep in mind that I have hands the size of dinner plates, and this little guy is less than two inches / five cm long. Love him though because he is so darn cute! :heart:

Haha! What a cutie! My ranchu has a wen but it is very, very compact. While I love a good ranchu or lion head I actually think the lighter wen look is awesome. Your bald chu is pretty adorable :D

You have an eggfish!  I have a 3 year old wakin that is ~ 2 inches s.l.  (S)he is the prettiest by far of any of the several wakin I have from that year.  That fish has produced offspring.

You've made me feel so much better about my fry now! They are 8 months old and most of the ones I've kept are only about his size.

 

He is a little cutie! So tiny and round x3
