tail portion is not bad
body wise, if the back issn't so humpy, and the curve starts abit later, would be better
stomach looks as if kena langar from behind and compacted in front
Frankie
Back is humpy. Too high.

Peduncle (downside) is too long.

Tail not pointed up enough.

Probably too young to comment on the wens. But it looks like there is potential on its top wens.

Hope you did not pay yoo much for this piece.
Frankie
I like the side profile of the tails although it can be a little more erect.

The fish's back profile is wrong. It's too high and the arch not of the right shape.

I'm not too sure about the body joints at the tails; it seems the peduncle is of the right length and position but the tummy is either too forward or it's too small making the fish look unbalanced.

I second the above Frankie's assessment on the wen but I wonder if you can send in another photo showing the cheeks?

Finally, don't pay too much for a small fish. Those small ones at LFS are usually culls. Once in a while you may get lucky but it's unlikely to get a good catch. This one should costs less than $10 or at most $15.

I have seen your post in AF. From the photo, the fish you show here is the worst of the lot. The first 2 fishes look better in photo.

Ahahahaha. So now we know who owns this fish. Hi Chinmo! hi.gif

Yeah, I dragged myself over to AF to look at the other fishes.

Unfortunately I cannot agree with the other me (quoted above) that the 2nd fish looks better. It's the worse of the lot. C'mon, there's a serious kinked on its back near the tails joint which will restrict this fish's maximum growth. Are you that same "KID" who commented it having a nice hump? rofl.gif It does not lah, silly boy.. but your new little 2ft tank rocks, or should I say, pimpjuice my man!

Chinmo... goldfish's colour pattern will change over time. If you based your selection on this criteria, you will be disappointed in no time. So don't hor.

wuahaha, i kenna suan liao. no i am not the KID laugh.gif

sure there's a kink, but i'm not saying it is good. just better than the 3rd fish. given the photo angle, i will definitely give the 3rd fish a miss. the 1st 2 fishes i will have to take a better look. but still, 2 of the better fish in AF for some time liao.

hmm, on closer scrutiny, the 2nd fish is in the background in the 3rd picture. from this angle, i'll give it a miss also. tail cmi. so left the 1st fish. ok now the 1st fish is the best of the 3 wuahaha biggrin.gif

Curious.

paid 50 for the "buffalo cheeks" thai bred, not sure worth that much not... don laugh at me, stll learning how to choose nice goldfish. tongue.gif lfs is in lim chu kang, not very nice to say the name ...... tongue.gif
Frankie
To me,this fish definately worth more than 15 bucks.
And definately not the type of culls you get for 5 bucks at LFS.
I like the arch,but the downside is that it tends to limit the lenght of the fish as it grows.A gentler arch,or one that starts later from the head,has more potential for growth later.
GA Secretary
I'll transfer she and the other 2 ranchu into green water, see if there improvement a mth later... smile.gif
GA Secretary

Hi, due to the Goldfish Academy's anonymity policy, the "secretary" is actually the owner while the "Frankies" are the members who commented on the fish. If the "secretary" or "Frankie" wants his ID to be known, he may sign off the post with his user ID like this post of mine
