Yes I fell in love with him when I first saw him. (hehe love at first sight). Anyways, his belly tells me he's a pearlscale but then we can barely see his pearlscales. Anyways, I'll try to get a better picture of him and his scales. :)

Fat tummy doesn't always mean pearlscale :) the scales of a calico fish might look like pearlscales sometimes because of the difference in opacity and such. However I'm in love with him!! He's such a nice calico fantail and I'm sure will grow into a unique, big, beautiful fish.

i don't think he has any pearlscale in him as the babys are quite round i recently bought a baby pearlscale and i have to say they are extremely round bodied fish. i still think he is a juvinelle ryukin.

i would just like to point out it looks like you have an extremely strong current in your tank as the fish look like they are having an enormous amount of trouble swimming without being blown about

Hey d_golem, the fish in your siggy is beautiful. How old was he in the first picture and how old in the last picture?

Thx mate. Not sure how old she was in the first one, prolly 3-4 months old as she was only about 1.5 inch long. The last picture was taken 1.5 years ago (wow I never realised that it's already that long ago). Now she is around 2.5 years of age and 4.5 inches in length.
