Comments please. I think it's cute. But is it worth 250 bucks? Maybe the color too light needs to be darker red.

250 bucks as in Spore dollars or US dollars? Hmmm... but I think it's still very expensive anyway... hmm.gif

I think cross breed. If its cross breed I don't think worth that much juz like ranchu lionhead is also a cross breed therefore it not selling at ranchu price (some lfs are) so becareful.

It's too strange looking to me. Sorry. sad.gif

Even the other fins are longer then a typical ranchu.

Weird. ohmy.gif

250 US$.... yeah, to steep for me too. If this fish were calico or darker red then......maybe.

Thanks for talking me out of it.

One time a store around here had some of these and honestly I thought they looked horrible. I think that amount of money would be better spent on a normal high quality Ranchu or any other standard variety.

I just came across this page with pics of goldfishs resembling the one on auction.

Hi smgutie,

Yeah, long tail ranchu...... I dunno.... I'd rather have a Phoenix.

Did you see that Rick is posting 50 fish tonight for auction? Do you think he is trying to get a jump on sales, since Ken at DO's just released his first video. (I ordered a video, oh geez....)
