You're most welcomed and thanks for the suggestion to put the guide up; it was done so long ago I completely forgotten about it. blush.gif

I should add a few points about this guide.

It's NOT based on any country or club preference and shall not be taken as a competition reference -- it's really just my OWN preference on how I like my ranchus.

As far as I know, there's no "international" standard on how a side-view ranchu should be. I made this guide for newbies to figure out why a ranchu he acquired did not get a "swee ah" respond from anyone (except fellow newbies.) If you follow the guide when selecting your ranchu, your chances of hitting jackpot increase. biggrin.gif

Colored Fins: This is obviously my personal preference as I like to keep my goldfish (yeah... not just ranchus) in a all white tank/tub/basin. If the fins are not coloured, the fish would look deformed with missing fins. Watching those little pectoral fins peddle in the water makes me happy; I don't want to miss seeing them.

Anal Fins: I meant to put a reference to these fins but unable to fit it in the guide. As far as I'm concerned, single or a pair of anal fins is fine. Obviously a pair is the norm and for some groups of people, single anal fin disqualifies the ranchu for competition. Look, I'd rather have one perfect anal fin then a pair of defective ones. And... yeah... it doesn't bother me whether the single anal fin sticks out to the left or to the right of the anal.

Enjoy the guide but do look at other bros' collection to understand and learn to appreciate ranchus the way you like them to be, or we'll be living in a world where everyone has identical looking girlfriends/wife/mistresses who look exactly like Miss Universe.
