Hi Folks,

 

First time attempt to raise frys (by accident). Now I appreciate the hardwork you breeders put in to come up with a few but very beautiful beauties. Anyway, as the topic suggests, I'm new at raising frys. Yesterday was my first big cull (from close to 200 to around 60). My main criteria are their tails. They're 5 weeks old and came from blue and lemonhead ranchu parents (from Cynthia - ECR).

 

Here's a link to the video. 

 

Meet the parents -):

Any feedback on potential future culls are appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

How and when did you get that blue ranchu? :o

 

Water depth is a big deal for grooming ranchus, so that would be one avenue to start researching if you haven't already. :)

Appreciate the feedback. 

 

Got the blue ranchu from Cynthia of East Coast Ranchu (highly recommended btw). 

 

Yes, my water level to date is around 6" deep. Hoping to get at least 8 from this batch.

Thanks all, they keep me busy, and broke -)

 

@Dale - I still have the culled fishies on a separate big tank, dont know what to do with them. I try giving them out to friends but still too many. 

 

Anyone interested locals here in Jersey? Pickup only as i'm shipping 'handicapped'. I'd be happy to trade or give back to the group. Have more than 50 left. Dad is a blue ranchu and mom a lemonhead ranchu (both from ECR).

Have you looked into selling them to a local pet store as pet grade goldfish?

Even your culls are probably nicer than the average goldfish you see in a big box store.

@Dale, thanks, I'll look into that. 

Even if you got a dollar a piece for them they have got to be nicer than any of the goldfish I saw today 

for sale at the local big box stores. Not a very good selection available locally here.

Wow, they are gorgeous! I'll hopefully be looking for another Ranchu in a few months, so let us know when/if you're selling your non-culls!
