2" only ? Looks like at least 4" fish leh ... but nice catch, very nice.
goldrush
Oh no my sincere apology.Just made my most accurate measurement by the ruler

approximately 10cm and that is very close to Matrix estimate of 4inch.(nose to tip of tail)But fish looks kind of smaller than real............. tongue.gif

Wah Goldrush moving from cheapo culls to good quality ones now...........
Business must be good these days. rolleyes.gif

Btw, nice shape and nice scales.
goldrush
Hey cp

This fish maybe just photogenic and it is not that show class yet.what you see is just a blown up pic.The color is a bit faint and weak at the moment.

The scales look very neat & tidy ;)

Will try to capture a sharper pic if time permits.
Most of time we tend to underestimate the length at a glance but if you really measure out,you will be in for a surprise.bash.gif

Looks like a lionchu with that bulldog chin thinking.gif

This line seems to have gone missing for a while ... few years ago I also very hot over this lionchu thing ... Possible someone restart and cross with ranchu again to get this type of head.

Doc, good catch.. peace.gif ... don't tell me this is a cull buy, if so market collapse liao.
no wonder no interest recently to chiong ranchu......

double chin?

length wise, i am sure it will exceed the desired length if it is close to 10cm now. a good 2 weeks green water spar will brighten the colour and in time for comp,
don need to show clear pic, send for comp straight fo all to catch a view good.gif

ok manage to hit this decent shot from the other side of this fish

The small scales makes the fish appear larger than it is.

Yes it has that double chin.See below

Hahahaha even if it qualifies for Cat A,it will be at a serious disadvantage of being the smallest of its class

Hahaha... double-chinned lionchus are cute...

Check out the eyes.... The almond shaped line looks like human's tongue.gif I have a couple of female ranchus with such eyes and I think they look lovely biggrin.gif

Aiyo ... how many times must I say har ... size does not equal to winner.

1999 ( or is it 1997 ?? ) Aquarama, one of the 1st prize winner was only 12cm, the smallest in the entire class of giant fish.
