RG getting too bored liao so decide to post a challenge.

Purely on a friendly international encounter,I have decided on a personal experimental basis to feature these two contenders to ascertain their future developments.

In this corner ,a Thai thorough bred,5 inch full back red with white belly.
goldrush
In the other corner,a Chinese guangchou specimen,measuring 4.5 inch,minimal headgrowth but excellent coloration

Both are released on the same date(8/06/05) into a FG black pond having 4 hours of morning sun.The pool measures 6x4x1 feet and hold approximately 650 liters of water.They share with another 5 ranchus of approximately equal size

Water

Alternate days of 20-30% change with top up through the mains and a weekly total change of water will be instituted Water is filtered through wool and bio balls in a boxed filter.

IPB Image
goldrush
Diet
The fishes will be fed every 2 hourly on purely paste food made out of Koi carp pellets.
Roughly they will have at least 5 meals a day


IPB Image
goldrush
Duration

The fish will be measured,harvested 3 months of now to ascertain their progress,deterioration or any significant transformations.


The pic below show the day of their release into the FGT

can you get a better picture on the tail of the thai ranchu please peace.gif, and if that's how he holds the tail, with the bent usually I don't think it'll be a very good future specimen since a ranchus tail is very important IMO

The chinese ranchu needs a straighter back IMO

too bad i don't focus on ranchus as much as I do dragons
goldrush
The thai about to be released






Baring any unforeseen circumstances(eg accidents,disease outbreaks etc)please make a date with me to see their outcome………….(sometime in September?)










see you

Forgive me, I can't see the tail's tip from the last pic as it is too dark...

Friend,

Dont you think the current created by the submerged pump (looks Eheim to me)is too strong liao. ohmy.gif Like washing machine ah!

The turbulence created from the box filter shd be sufficient IMO. rolleyes.gif
goldrush
Hhahahahaa

To me the surface break made by mixing air and water at the surface create excellent aeration.Apart from this I still have 2 airline from my Hi Blow to allow further aeration.This somehow make the fish more lively and increase their appetite(Maybe more dissolved oxygen leh)

it is eheim alright(my most trusted brand)

Goldrush,

You can be charged under ISA for instigating these type of Thai vs Chinese racial sentiments.Detention without trial. biggrin.gif

Anyway here are my predictions on the winning traits whereby Matrix will definately disagree with me:
The Thai will win in body shape,headgrowth,scalation,profile of back.
The Chinese will win in eventual size.
Colouration category will tied.

Winner is Thai, by a unanimous decision.Update us in 3 months.

Off topic but I believe that temperature is the controllong factor with regards to dissolved oxygen (DO).That means by increasing aeration will not increase DO unless water or room temperature is lowered.

So I suggest maybe turn on the air-conditioner in your fish room for 24hrs if you want to maximise DO rofl2.gif

use a chiller, more effective hysterical.gif

Hi Maniacholic, are you refering to a "chinese lionhead" instead, which a straight back is essential to be a good specimen ?

Yo CPIW or are you from CPIB

Dissolved oxygen in the water is influenced by various factors in which temperature is one of them.In our climate and especially in my fish room,temperature can be uncomfortably high.So to compensate we need vigorous aeration to ensure adequate oxygenation.Here is a thread to enlighten you on dissolved oxygen

I thought ranchus need a straight back near the face and only a curve at the butt blush.gif
goldrush
This experiment is conducted with no eventual winner in mind.I just like to share with you two different racial specimen of similar build being subjected to similar environment,diet and upbringing to further evaluate which particular breed suit our climate ,our taste and perhaps our aspiration to own which type.

Things that I would like to assess include (as cpiw has spell out)
color
size
headgrowth
scalation
but also disease tolerance(if there is any outbreak)
Gait,Swimming posture

Let us not conclude or predict the outcome for the moment

90 days is all it takes and mark this date on your RG calender to view the outcome

Strictly NO SNEAK PREVIEW hmm.gif hmm.gif hmm.gif

So whether it is Chinese Kung Fu or Thali Boxing that prevails there will never be any MORTAL COMBAT.

Hi Maniacholic

Perhaps you can look up this thread to tell the difference

I know the difference and some of the guidelines, I am just having trouble wording my comments sorry-big.gif

i guess i understand what u meant by straighter back ... kekekeke ...

it's one of the obvious different between a chinese and a thai fish other than the scaling. It's straighter becos it has a longer body.
