Wow mrchoco!

Very cool! How did you do it?
HappyBuddha
No way!

I had a black ranchu that turns copper in about 2 months as I delibrately kept it in my community tank with a relatively high pH. But it was cooper! Your fish was intensely orange.

How could it be possible?

Goosh! This is so cool!

I noted most black ranchu has a "lionhead" kind of headgrowth. If I can get a Black Ranchu with a typical ranchu headgrowth, I'd be one happy man.
mrchoco
it has been in my hospital tank for more than a month. daily water changes. the pH in AMK is quite high. 7.8 maybe the high pH brought it up.
it was attacked by my rainbow ranchu while in the main tank. When the wen grew back, it was black too. now my mum says this fish looks good as a black ranchu. All i did was to treat it. Quite high salinity in the hospital tank though, might be the salt. I dunnoe. ohmy.gif

Today reached home see him not active and fins clamped. water parameters check all ok. saw some white shit, so suspect int bact. using intepret 9 at the moment for treatment. hope he gets well soon. Have been treating him for more than 2 months already. darmn shag.

Oh dear, please send my condolences.

Is there a chance he could peek inside the corpse to see if the interior of the mouth is red or black in colour?

I tried taking pics of my then just died Black Oranda but the camera is unable to do it clearly; the interior of the mouth is black in colour. I was expecting to find some spots of red but none could be found! It's a real black fish.
