Simply white marks my centennial (100 topic started…yeah) topic posts for RG today with much influence coming from poster of fish GA083 at the Academy I got the uncanny feeling he belongs to one of my CULL CULT member by virtue of his presentation.Anyway my presentation has no bearing to any tooth whitening procedure or product marketed for tooth whitening as the title implies.
I just like to show some of my whites and perhaps share their upbringing and shortcomings in their keeping.

The first post shows two of my very junior members measuring 2 and1/2 inch across their max. length at present. When I got them about a month back in Sept 2005 they were barely 2 inch in length. Growth rate is nothing to crow about. But I chose fish with nice smooth curve, angled tail without much head growth.Ratio of its length to height should be longer to allow fill up in the future.Rotundant body should be avoided at this stage as growth maybe impeded if such body structure is selected. These are however only my personal opinion.

The second post shows one of my self bred ranchu which has turned one recently.If you had followed through my post perhaps this piece will bring back some memories of its development.The headgrowth has been pathetic throughout compared to its colored siblings.Simply white shows somehow slower growth and diminished headgrowth.

The first pic shows it around Jan 2005


The second was taken in March

Third post shows my adult white which I had posted earlier in my previous thread under ebony and ivory.Again growth has been pathetic but this one the headgrowth is more pronounced and desired.Measuring some 5 inch now,you can notice specks of red and yellow threaten to invade to its once pure virgin whiteness much to my disappointment.

Middle pic is wat it is today

Forgive my colored discrimination against the whites.If over all growth and headgrowth are your cup of tea then you may be in for a little disappointment if whites are your preference.The development of white may lack behind their colored bros in many aspects perhaps their unblemished and innocent exuberance (shiro muji: simply nothing but white)is enough to entice some (like myself) to keep them for simply PURE pleasure.

Since when did you start having criterias buying fish? no.gif

I always thot you suffer from GCBD ( Goldfish Compulsive Buying Disorder); like how some ladies who need to buy a pair of shoes every week. birgits_giggle.gif

It has been discussed that white headgrowth is slow; but fret not.......last year's AJRS grand champ was an all white (almost), at this year's yuhua comp Laser's fish is also an all white.

Though I buy with shoe string budget I still must have some basic instinct to pick up some good buys good.gif with reasonable features if not they can only turn out to be good byes bye.gif
