This is a continuation of the HappyBuddha's Ranchu Fries thread -- the fries are babies now.

Hatched 3 months ago on March 27, 2004, this is my baby ranchus now:-

This is my favorite piece.

I keep it and its mates in a guppy tub with clear water. Today for the 1st time I noticed it has pom poms. hair.gif I wonder why, however, despite being 3 months old, it hasn't completely lose its baby black coluoring.

It's a happy ranchu. Constantly swimming about exploring the tub, poking its nose on the sponge filter seeminly calling the BB to come out and play. biggrin.gif

I hope this can inspire some of you to try breeding your own. It's fun... and I *think* I know what geert meant when he said you have to monitor how much you feed your fries....

Ah yes, one of the female is a TBJ.

But I don't think that piece is turning into a TBJ. The "black" just isn't black enough. Here's a real TBJ baby from the same spawn.

Not pretty hor... until you realized it's probably a 11-black. shiok.gif

Still on the subject of Baby Black colouring....

Here's the 3rd piece of baby ranchu I have and it's also still in, without any doubt, the baby black colour. It has pom poms too... and has a smooth curved back.

The final piece.

This is the smallest among the four I'm keeping. It doesn't have pom poms. Flush! mad2.gif

Kekeke. Part of the fun of keeping goldfish is to watch them change. I was waiting for this little fella to change from its baby black to red, or at most red/black since the mom is a Tie Bao Jing. Much to my surprise he's now all black (well.... with half faded black bottom so typical of low quality black ranchu.). In my black background tank where it lives... it looks seriously black. tongue.gif

We'll see if it will turn all red, or maybe red/black, or red/white.

Fun eh?
