Oei, quick leh... what are some of the other reasons?

You want to see for yourself if you can make it big? no.gif

Afterall, it's a relatively well known fact that ranchu with such drastic drop on its back can't grow big -- when was the last time you saw a large (more than 7 inches) ranchu with such a body shape?

Don't waste precious swimming space; dedicate it to your other new ranchu -- love its body shape sia. wink.gif

I don't really understand what's a lionchu. blush-big.gif

Look here for big ranchu.

I think it's pretty safe to say large ranchu usually don't have a 90° back?

Eh, how to explain ?
The lower rim of the tail joint expended further into the body compared to the top, machiam the whole tail wrapped around the body...get the picture ? May be the picture can show better...

Let me expand it a little bit.

The tails must extend horizontally out from the joint a little first before it starts to drop down. Otherwise, you won't be too impressed by the wrap around effect; just look at pheonix. When you look from behind, the wrap round tails is an inverted Y vs an inverted V in pheonix's case.

I'm in loooove.

I've seen in your previous posting this gorgeous ranchu's side profile. You did mentioned it looks good from the top too. Seeing it now I'm not disappointed.

Laser, have you seen similar long bodied ranchu of this size WITH this kind of tails AND such massive headgrowth? I've not. cry.gif

I think they are very rare?

Those i've seen with similar features usually have bad back when seen from the side. But of course, it's said a good tv ranchu looks good from the side too, but unfortunately rarely seen. I guess there are gorgous sv ranchu that looks good from the top too but again rarely seen. Sigh.

Having the best of both world is godsend.

can't deny this is the best i ve seen thus far in having a well balance side and top view. good.gif yokozuna title means got substance.

for a sv , i still prefer the conventional normal tail than the wrap around effect of this yokozuna ranchu.

i withdraw my statement that this type of tail is deformed. pai sei blush.gif

If this piece is mine I will appreciate it from the side. biggrin.gif

How does a ranchu attain the rank of Yokozuna?Is it the same way a sumo wrestler attain the rank (by winning 2 consecutive bashos (tournaments))?

Mai hiam mai hiam (since I don't know whose ranchu it is. biggrin.gif)

Swee ah! I love chubby (as a complement for things cute and cuddly) ranchu! The smallish tails exergerates its chubbiness, doesn't it?

Who can't love that adorable face with that permed hairdo? Ha ha.
