Starting to think he is not a fantail. I see a small hump and he is getting to round. What you think? Fantail or poor quality ryukin.

No Idea , but is very good looking. :Congrats: You should put him on a dating site ;)

I think he's a fantail, look at how curved the backs are on some telescopes and orandas! I think it's normal to have a curved back, but on ryukins it gets packed out so much more. To my mind his head isn't pointy enough to be a ryukin either, but it's hard to say! Aren't I helpful ;)

Most of the orandas have been crossed with ryukins. A lot of modern orandas are crossed with ryukins.

Micah can be considered low quality ryukin or simply fantail. Anything that does not fit well by standards almost always get labeled as fantails.

i think fantail.. the nose is not pointy like my ryukin or the others i see.. but i do see what you mean about the hump.. perhaps he's just going through a growth spurt and the rest of his body will catch up.. love the tail and the colourings.

What ever he is, he sure is a beauty! That tail is amazing!

LOL - At first I thought you had two fish that looked exactly the same in the one photo, but then I realized it was two photos joined together! :doh11:
