Here is a $12 ranchu bought in mid April 06 from QH.It was a TVR 'reject' IMO, and was purchased for the fun of it and for SV appreciation.It has an obvious flaw of a bent up left tail shoulder, and the peduncle isnt as smooth, but what do you expect for twelve bucks har.......

I picked it for it longish body shape,and the scales looked not too bad.

Here it is in mid April 06, at just a little over one inch in lenght: (Sorry for the bad quality pics, taken in haste while still in bag)
