Its been more than 4 years since someone has written another good sideview ranchu selection guide which in my opinion deserved to be pinned so I have merged Goldrush's topic to this pinned topic here.
-CP







Not quite my Paper back Best Seller yet laugh.gif however I would like to supplement some of the best writings here on selection of a sideview fish with my own personal taste and foresight without being perjorative in intent.

I received a call 2 days ago from my supplier that a batch of sample fish(only 4) from Thailand has arrived for my selection.So I took this opportunity without much hesitation as such lobang are rare and far in between.I will use this sample as a guide as to why I choose this fish to help you understand my key to good selection techniques.At the end of reading I hope you can be better equipped with an eye for fish with lots of potential in the future.

Look at these few pics of the same fish taken today

From the topview,look for fish that has thick back,thick peduncle and nice 4 pivot tail.Nice even headgrowth with futan to complement would be plus point.Even and refine scalation makes neat and nice presentation.

THIS IS THE MOST PERFECT SHOT FOR A SIDEVIEW APPRECIATION AND ASSESSMENT

From the side look for long slender body with smooth back.Tail carriage at approximately 45degree would be ideal.Make sure the the highest point of its tail doesn't surpass the highest point of its dorsal back.Short body gives little leeway for growth as compact body at a young age signifies poor lenghthwise growth.


OK these are my guide which time and time again I will refer and ponder over before I make my purchase.I hope the above step-by-step approach will help you select your fish through a consistent process with a clear concept that will aid you to sieve out the unwanted and zero in on the desired ones.My goals are clear cut however the truth is that there is no perfect fish .You don't need one to feel complete either.The hunting for such an elusive or illusive fish is both healthy and challenging even though more often than not such a specimen is outside the realm of reality.....

Well maybe oneday I may write a BESTSELLER here rolleyes.gif
