Saw one of the LFS at Geylang has nice Orandas and red capped oranda. Nice headgrowth I would say and one of the $25 ranchu has a good broad body shape. Almost bought it but no more tank space. The location is along the stretch of shops beside a bus stop and Aljunied Mrt station. Can enjoy the 60 cents Tao Huay too. biggrin.gif

Are you talking about Aquatic Connection at Sim's Place? Probably not becoz I don't recall seeing any hawker selling tao huay. So... what's the name of the shop? Thanks.
LASERGUY
Cannot really recall the name of the shop but it's definately not Aquatic Connection. I can only describe the location but can't give you anything except that there is 2 lfs along the stretch and at the end is a durian stall. It opens till 3 am. If I am not wrong Xerovix knows what I am talking about. When the hype on black ranchus heat up, I mentioned the place and he knows where am I talking about.

Hi guys, just bought 3 short-tail ryukins from 35A, Pasir Ris Farmway 2. Will update pictures soon.

Qian Hu got large number of different sizes thai/chinese ranchu. From $8 to $200. And they are both in the tub and tank section too. Worth a look if you looking for ranchu.

Actually, based on QH's classification, they only sell lionhead wor.

I did find very nice ranchus in a tub of lionhead in QH yesterday afternoon.

I was most impressed, however, by a few calico oranda in a glass tank near the goldfish tub area. They have very massive cap and headgrowth that are covering their eyes. Very cute. If I'm not wrong, they were going for $20 or so only.

Also at QH, I saw the biggest demekin ever. Nearly 8-9 inches long (including the tails lah.) There was a pair in white... and those butterfly-like tails were impressively large. Too bad they are too large for me to keep at home. Sigh. But I sure envy anyone who could afford to keep them.

There was also a pair of red/white moor in another glass tank (near the driveway). These have very big eyes. Too bad one of them the tails is rotting away. sad.gif

Finally, there are some jumbo ranchus in the covered, darkened showroom. Super nice looking body and headgrowth is impressive too.

All those I mentioned above without giving the prices... are... not for sale. sad.gif

Last sat morning, saw one guy bought one of those jumbo ranchus u've mentioned. From far can see the big goldfish in the plastic bag.

Want to buy one pair of those but didn't have space for them. Look very round n pui with massive headgrowth.

There's one tub near the tanks selling jumbo ranchu at $200. Notice there's one with very short body and massive headgrowth ranchu. From top view look very cute.

There's another 2 tanks behind the tub also got jumbo ranchus but no price on the tank, and it's written booked in chinese.

Does they look like a hybrid lionhead? How old are their ranchu judging from their size and headgrowth?

Hi,

Just back from lunch from Clementi Florist C328. they have new arrival of 2 tanks of ryukin

I think is $20 each.. inclusive of tail about 11 to 12cm.

Nice Day

Hi All,

I visited Home Of Ranchu at bukit batok blk 644 today. Saw some of their ranchu. In my opinion, those in glass tank, not bad looking, nice egg shape body w/ nice arc. Also some leftover in the fibre glass tank have thick back bone and nice fin but head growth and head size to body ratio not too impressive. Also was told one of the shop owner making a trip to Thailand to bring back some Top view ranchu.

I received a SMS from Home of Ranchus that they have "...new arrival of best breeder AAA top view ranchu welcome for viewing tomorrow."

So... if you're interested, do drop by early.

Kind of strange, JK Aquatics at 60, Lor 25A Geylng (a spin-off from JK Koi at Pasir Ris Farmway 2) also advertised arrival of Topview Japanese Ranchu from Yatomi.
Coincidence ???? unsure.gif
By the way, visited them on Tuesday. Saw few tubs of 6 months old tosai going at $220 ~ $800 each, around 2~3 inches. Also saw a few tanks holding "sold" fishes, superior quality than those leftover in the tubs.

Hi,

Any comments on the price and quality of those Jap ranchu from JK aquatics?

Pardon me but isn't 2-3 inches a little small for Japanese tosai (of 6 months old)?

GnG's baby ranchu, born 4 Aug 2003 (+/- 2 days) are already larger.

Fishy....

QUOTE(hun citizen @ Fri 05 Dec 2003 07:03 PM)
Tomorrow, I will go there and look see look see.  Maybe will by one or two pieces if they are indeed Japanese ranchu.... since I have already dumped all my Thai Ranchu leow.

Will give feedback.

jap ranchu lah. some not so good, but found 2 piece not too bad .... but really the size a little small for a tosai at this period of time. likely the late bred or slow grower.

there is 1 piece there quite big ... i see see see and i think i recalled seeing it in the net ...

Laser, they brought in the fishes last week and only put ads this week.

If this the case, then no point going down for selection for those really interested, because those good one in this batch already chupped by their regulars long before they advertised.
Inspect those in the "reserved or sold" tank/tub, you can judge that they are the best in this batch (short tail joint, hugh tail seat etc,) only don't know whether they are charged differently or not.

Looking at their so call Hokkiado Ryukins and the price..... I must say it is very expensive and the quality so so only.... btw, I think their Ryukin is from Thai.... where got Jap Ryukin at that size selling at 500 for a pair !!
