Hahahaha.

I didn't believe you could resist the temptation... until I re-read your original post.

I have mis-understood, and thot those the very rare BLACK pearlscales.

They are just normal crown pearl but becoz they're still babies are "black" in colour.

Thank god I was tied down or I would have rushed out (before mountain does) to AC and grab a pair.

:siaoleow


Let's hope mountain read this before he rush over ... biggrin.gif

black babies, so i dunno what color they would turn out anyway.. unless u ask seah the source, hehe

I just called Seah over the phone and he also don't know if the black baby ranchus will be of what colour when they lose their baby black colouring.

I feel lucky. I will try my luck and hope they will not be black ranchus.

Went there last evening, found out that they are actually black thai babies which some of them have already starting to change colour. Scan them thru and some of them are not bad at all. Only $2 each, cheap cheap...than GNG. Did not get any 'cause I have run out of tank space.

It's getting confusing.

ET said it's baby ranchu (still in their baby black colouring.)

Allan ask Seah and Seah said he doesn't know what colours they may turn out to be.

You saw with your own eyes that they are black ranchu.

I will take your word for it since you're impartial while seah may be trying to please Allan who don't want black ranchu. smile.gif

$2 nia ah?

Chiong ah!

Keong Seong have got some new Thai ranchu price range $35, $45 and $70. They also brought in those tiny 1.5 inch "lionchu". It's kept with the pearl scales for $2 each, very cute. If only I have the tank space wink.gif

I love it. Cannot complaint except.. maybe... those few white scales smack in the middle of the red ones. I *suspect* they are are re-generated ones. I had a Ryukin that dropped one red scale among a sea of reds... and the new re-generated one is white in colour. mad.gif

That's very interesting... the same way they purposely scrape the Jikins in order to have only red fins with white bodies... peace.gif

Was at the Jalan Kayu area this afternoon when it was pouring rain.

Straits have 3 tubs of ranchu. One is a tub of Black Ranchu. I didn't pay much attention to them. The last tub ihas side-view ranchus as the head are rounded. The rain was too heavy and I can't take a close enough look at them. The middle tub, however, has some nice top view ranchus. I saw at least 3 pieces with thick backbone and tail seat. The tails are beautiful too. The rest are very typical thai topview you can get elsewhere. The uncle manning the ranchu sales was at the backyard so I didn't bother to ask him about the prices. I left without buying any ranchus from them today. Saw a bunch of school kids salivating over some bettas in the betta section.

C&B has two ranchus, the worse kind of "topview" you could find. biggrin2.gif That single large tub (meant for koi) has a variety of other goldfish but they are all huge. The keeper is not aware when next shipment will arrive.

Was there last week, those ranchu you mentioned were quoted for $180 each. Among their tub of old-stock black thai, there are two new fishes with solid headgrowth, machiam "Chye Huey", the uncle tried to push them for $150 but have to turn him down because one got deformed tail due to perhaps injuries when it's younger and the other one got deformed backarch...
He don't seems mind at all after letting me "molested" his fishes, probably thinking that he can con other into buying this pair of black easier...
