Very funny.

Ranchu doesn't have the dorsal fin how can have 12-reds.

That red strip on its back doesn't count as one red hor or else Andy's ranchu has 13-reds ah (the whole head also red karler!)

12 red is actually chinese term of describing unique white goldfish with red fins (9 reds), 2 red eyes and one red lip, sum up to 12 red.

Anyway, meant to be a joke to describe domho7's fish as 12 red lah. Actually his is not counted as 12 red becuase there is no red dorsal and body must be all white.

Japanese Jikin keeper actually pucked away all the red scales on the body in order to achieve 12 red....Basket must report them to SPCA.....

身体上十二个部位呈现红色,包括两个眼睛、两片胸鳍、两片 胸鳍、四片尾鳍,口镶红和背鳍红,其余均为白色。十二红色型中以 口红最难稳定,其名贵亦在于此。它是中国金鱼的特色品种,是从 红白花色金鱼中定向培育而成。其饲养有着特殊的要求。

Briefly the above describes the 12-reds. The body must be all white. The red lips are the most difficult to maintain the redness.

A "no prawn fish also good" 12-reds; the body is not all white.

One good sample: http://science.yam.com/water/world/goldfish/gdf_049.html

Or maybe you prefer a 12-black? biggrin.gif

A table in the middle of this page clearly shows a 12-red commands a significantly higher price than a normal goldfish. http://www.china-xuzhou.com/zhuyewenzhi/shuichan-xindong.htm

good points:

1. square head
2. balanced development
3. good tail spread
4. nice scales and color

bad points:

1. tail stem is thin
2. distance between eyes and nose is too close.
