Well,I do not know Chinmo and have not met him,but felt somewhat impressed at this :
http://www.arofanatics.com/forums/showthre...51&page=1&pp=10


This piece is also featured in GA back in Sept 04,here:
http://www.RafflesGold.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=1445


Here is one piece which has shown marked improvement in colouration and headgrowth, but for size can't really tell as the "before and after" fish size was not mentioned.

It also serves as a good case study on the accuracies and follies of the comments by "Frankie", some has predicted correctly on the headgrowth good.gif whereas some had said it was not worth more than $15. good_no.gif

I was one of the "Frankie" but will not disclose to you which post kekekekeke........

A classic case of nurture over nature
An inspiration for our insatiable aspiration
Physical attributes aside,the ranchu seems to metamorphosize from a much often discarded piece to an exceptional specimen under the hands of its keeper.Both hood development and colour have intensified with his rearing skills.

Having viewed the pictures, I almost fell of my chair.
The headgrowth and the colouration were marvellous!
Looks like a 180 degree transformation. It's the
story of an ugly duckling that turns into a swan.
A frog into a prince. A rundown to the ranchu!

What do you feed your fish with and how often?
You did say that you feed them until they peng.
Where did you get your fish?

Bravo brother! good_very.gif

Based on what is seen, do you all think the first picture is of a Chinese Ranchu or Thai Ranchu? the second picture? or is there suppose to be any difference in the first place? i've difficulty with this, particularly as i don't keep sv Ranchu but as CPIW pointed out, this is a really interesting case ...

Yes, the headgrowth is marvellous. And colour wise, it has certainly improved a lot. I suppose that's the marvel of green water. Not sure.

It is good work, nonetheless!! good_very.gif

But high hump is still high hump. The growth in length and bulk will not change such natural feature.

no wonder .... u very the free.

I guess I am going against the rest ... head growth is poor, the only thing is the cheek which is good for someone keeping in clear water tank.

U will need the frequent water change to maintain this piece and in fact, improve on the food for other features.

After seeing the sideview directly (posts 9 and 10),this piece is not as great as I thot.Funny,left side of fish (post9) looks better than right (post10).The drawback is the too high hump.Nevertheless, still a very good effort!!

Gaining 2 to 3 inches in 7 months is nothing special, though.

But I remembered that Chinmo had one of the most elaborate green water setups from the 'pic of your tank' thread.Complete with interconnecting pipes everywhere, amazing dedication. beg2.gif

Keep drawing the inspirations.....for your own self bred.

See if yours can have the same outcome 7 months later from the time they are 2 inche fishes.

Some glimmer of hope.............

Er....very hard for me to explain.It just looks Thai.

For eg,if you show me a kid from Thailand and another kid from China and if I can pick out the Thai kid,how do you explain that?

But I can only guess SVs only hor, not TVs. smile.gif
Chinmo
Thanks guys for e comments. tongue.gif agreed the hump too high.... this pc is the worst of all 3, too bad, did not have e chance to snap pic of the first 2 before they "peng" sad.gif

Yap, all the ranchus from thai, if wanna go for jap ranchus, will go for the TV ones..... tongue.gif

i think this piece has is indeed improve remarkably under the owner's care ad really turn the table against those who have adverse comments on it when while it was smaller.

no matter what its inherent fault is , we here know that it would fetch $$$ if it is being sold in LHS now.
