Oh, I got to ask one more thing, to quote from geert's website, 'When the Ranchu moves, the tail should be slightly shut inside ; when the fish stops, the tail should be open as if a flower opened.' ...Please tell me the difference between 'collapse' and 'shut inside' so I can choose a better tail ranchu next time...Thx a lot... smile.gif

A good tails opens up like a cherry blossom. A good and strong tails will close up a little momentarily because of water resistance, and that's what geert coopens means by "shut inside". Otherwise the tails are held up like an opened umbrella. A collapsed tails, on the other hand, stay shut even when the fish is floating motionless. It's sad to see that.

I hope I'm clear about it. It's best observed in a swimming ranchu. Pay attention to that if you can.

(off-topic) A good ranchu also swims holding its head straight ahead instead of swinging from side to side "... as if it doesn't know where it wants to go", a common trait among sideview ranchus and cheap topview wannabe.
