OK, my very own input to this thread: smoke.gif




This WAS (died years ago la.... tongue.gif ) my favourite ranchu.As mentioned earlier by Happybuddha and Goldrush, the back must be SMOOTH.The curvature exhibited by this specimen is steep and drastic; and some may prefer a gentler curve.Its a matter of preference, but whats important is the curvature be smooth wthout kinks.
The scales should be neatly arranged, smaller scales is preferred over big scales.
Note the angle between tail and peduncle; the tail must look ERECT.

Swimming posture:
Select one that swims HORIZONTALLY and EFFORTLESSLY, minimal body and head movements with sexy swaying of the tail.

Very (if not the most) important criteria - tail.
A good tail when view from the rear should not be shut, whether when stationary or while swimming.It should be opened,forming an inverted 'V',with but with the two ends folding back inwards slightly.The overall look will resemble the shape of a BELL.In short, look for the "bell shaped tail".
Without a good strong tail, it will NEVER swim effortlessly.
Notice too the balanced anal fins from the pic, but personnally I wouldn't mind one with unbalanced anal fins or single anal fin.A matter of preference again.

Conclusion:
For those that find hunting for these attributes too complicated,especially those new to the hobby, just look for 2 things for a start:
1)A smooth back
2)An erect tail
These 2 attributes in my opinion forms the the most important criteria in SVR selection. wink.gif
