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.
