Albino Ryukin

On a recent trip to the LFS I took a peeksy at the small fancies and this quirky thing caught my eye. So I decided to take him home. :newfish The 3 Moors are very dark and a nice light fish throws that tiny hint of colouration in the tank.

I'm guessing he's a ryukin because of the promident hump, and I took a very unsure guess at calling him/her albino. He'she has the red eyes but also a solitary spot on his/her tail, kind of odd, unless he'she really isn't albino. What do you guys say?

He is very cute and pretty. He definitely looks like a ryukin. I don't think he is an albino though. The pupil of his eye looks black, and it should be a pink-red. The rest of his eye can be any color, its that center bit that matters. I'm no expert, but that is my opinion. :D

Merlin is very stunning!

Thanks guys, like I said, the albino was a very unsure guess, the spot threw me off over and over again. He's just a strange one then. :) You never know when the fish you happen to want show up. I think I can say of all the fish I have now, I never went to the store intentionaly looking for them, they pop out at me.

Merlin is a cutie!

Here's a link to my white ryukin:

His name is Casper and he was about the size of a dime when I spotted him in a tank of fantails at the local nooppee. He's about 4 or 5 inches long now and he's turned out to be a very nice fish, and I'm proud of him.

Good luck with Merlin!
