Hi Lee.

Interesting sites you have posted. Of all of them, Interesse (Zest) is the only one currently selling fish and only via Yahoo auctions. Yume ranchu specialises in Uno line ranchu, this may or may not be what you are looking for (they are a non-AJRA bloodline, although attractive and unique in their own way).

My advice to you would normally be to visit Ishikawa san in Northern Tokyo.

However his website is advertising that he has completely sold out of the last years Tosai that he wanted to sell. This means any fish he has left will be very pricey.

If you are able to visit Yokohama, then Namamugi is a good bet. They stock fish from famous bloodlines. www.ranchu.info/

Alternatively (and probably better in the long run), get on a train to Kokubunji in western Tokyo (Chuo line) and visit Jun san at J and K.

http/.jandk.net , tell him that Matsumoto-Prouten san sent you. He has a good turnaround of fish and breeds his own. He's also chairman of the Kourinkai and judge for West Tokyo. He's also a nice guy.

Also visit Seibu department store in Ikebukuro. The goldfish shop on the roof is probably the best non specialist (i.e private breeder) retailer in town. They have fish from all different breeders and also sell kuroko from good lines in the spring. Also Toaskin and Jikin if you are interested.
