Hello,

This Ranchu looks good. From the top and from the side. I only think it needs a lot of food so that the belly becomes deeper when seen from the side. A nice big tail ! I hope to see a better top view photo to give more detailed comments. Do you know the origin of this Ranchu ?

Regards,

Geert Coppens

I'm a newbie to topview ranchu, and IMO I don't think this is a topview ranchu. The scalings indicate it is chinese and is therefore a sideview ranchu. Nevertheless, the nice big tails is 4-pivoted which is one of the most sought-after kind. The last pic shows the shindachi is more than 45 degrees, which is good especially when the Ozuke connects at an acute angle, but the tails is too tall. If you observe, this ranchu may dive downwards when it tries to swim away quickly. The osa is quite messy (for a topview) but that's not relevant for a sideview. As a sideview ranchu, the body shape is not good as it is too long. At this young age, there's room for the wen and cheeks to develop, and if you feed and take good care of this chinese, it may, IMHO, turns out nicely as a sideview ranchu. The trick may be to flatten the horizontally suspended tails somewhat by keeping it in great depth and higher current tank, and pumping it to give it a full body.

... my 2 cents worth.

Few comments...
1) The topview shot is not optimal for assessment. It should be a direct-overhead shot.
2) For a 7.5 cm ranchu, it should look less well developed. Leads me to think this ranchu may be growth restricted(stunted).
3) Colour is too strong, head development too much for this size
4) Caudal peduncle not strong/thick enough
5) Reasonable tail structure, topline, markings
Cheers!

when i look at the pics of the ranchu, the first thing that cross my mind is.... the tail is too long. too wide and too long for that size of body.

Thank you very much for the extra photos. Yes, it is true that when seeing these photos, the body is too short. It is a pitty, because the tail, head and scales are beautiful. The caudal peduncle should also be much stronger.

Regards,

Geert, I am not so sure about the tail. Isn't there a kink in the hard rays? Would this constitue a major flaw?

Hello Frankie biggrin.gif

If you study the very first pic you'll notice the "kink" is not obvious. The "kink" is actually the tail folding down and flipped back as the fish swim forward.

http://www.japanranchu.com has basic info on how to assess a ranchu...may be useful as reference for the hobbyist.

I went through the article and find it sounds familiar. I checked and sure enough it is re-worded from an original article published by Geert Coppens, and with many details omitted. You're definitely better off to read the real thing which can be found on Geert's web site.

It's been six week since the fish was posted.

Six weeks is a relatively long period for a developing ranchu.

How about an update?
