Dear Matrix,

Thank you very much for the personal email you sent me. I believe you are a gentleman.

I do not understand why you did not want to reply my posting in the forum. OK, you do not want to reveal your full identity, which I will always respect. But I think it is not fair towards the other members of this forum and towards myself to continue this discussion privately. This interesting difference of opinion started here and should be discussed here. I like to defend my opinion. Maybe I am wrong, maybe I am right. I can live with that.

In your email, I did not find the detailed comments I hoped to learn from. You write you admit you are only a Ranchu student. There is nothing wrong with that. I can live with the fact that you, and other members (!), do not like this Ranchu. But, I hope to learn why. This is what "Goldfish Academy" is all about.

In the same email, you write that I kept this Ranchu badly. This is possible, but you say I should have kept it in green water. Maybe, but green water only helps to get a better colour. I think the red of this Ranchu is deep red and the white is very white. Or, am I wrong ?

Maybe this Ranchu is a little fat and the body a little short. But, you can not change this with green water. The short body is determined genetically. And when it is too fat, then this is because of feeding too many pellets ; not because it was not kept in green water. Anyway, the body will look slimmer after three months without feeding in water below 10°C.

As I will use this Ranchu for breeding, I wish it was more red. Here I agree with you. But as I said : "at least one of the two parents should be all red". But you can not have everything. With this post, I send a photo of a Mr. Fujiwara Seed Female Ranchu. It is almost all white !!!!! Mr. Fujiwara has been breeding Ranchu for more than 40 !!!!! years. He is the teacher of many famous Ranchu breeders.

Yesterday, I sent the photo of my Ranchu to a very good Japanese friend. He said : "very good Ranchu ; especially the head. You can breed good babies with this Ranchu."

I am one of the few people who wants to spread all possible information about keeping and breeding Ranchu. In your email, you say you do not want to put all information in a public forum. I do respect this, but knowledge is power. Spreading information makes more people interested in Ranchu. The more information, the more knowledge, the better the Ranchu will become. The better the Ranchu, the more competition. Competition makes us sharp to try to become better and better.

I decided to become less active in RG. This does not mean I say goodbye.

Your Ranchu Friend,

Geert Coppens
