Hi all

Almost two years back,I managed to acquire an unique patterned ryukin which showed similar reticulation as that of an ochiba found in koi.Here to recap that special moment

http://www.rafflesgold.com/forums/index.ph...7&hl=OCHIBA

Today,I share with all a similar piece but this time,it is a short tailed specimen.Though the body structure for this fish is not that ideal,I was drawn to its irresistable color pattern.This fish is closed to 16 cm which put it in the medium size range and I reckon this fish with lots of potential for growth.If you have read through the article written,that particular piece darken in just a few months of keeping.I wonder this piece will have a similar fate.Any way it remains to be seen how this piece will progress or deteriorate with time.

Here are some captured moments for your appreciation

I have to admit, most all of your fishes are unique and awesome.

Did you breed them all yourself?

The problem is that most of the time they do not always carry what you want.So timing and the seasonal availability is important but totally unpredictable.Sometime I am lucky but most of the time I come home empty handed.I have repeatedly written many times the usual LFS I have patronised in this forum so you can read all about it here.

What intrigued me was the TANCHO formation which was not even apparent in the fish when it was first kept.

Here are some topview still pics

hi Doc, besides regular water change, food, keeping it healthy and wall algae, what would you say contributed to its improved colour as I understand its not kept in green water? smile.gif

Gee I cannot isolate any distinctive contributions but i believe there are alot of interplay with nature and nurture.Nature as in genetics,sunlight,natural food.Nurture as in water changes,processed food and of course love yes.gif
As I cannot provide green water in my domestic husbandry,I have to modify my methods to achieve similar attainments proven by green water practices.Different schools of thought with closely similar attainments biggrin.gif
