Full Version: My Baby Long-tails Ryukin Pair

It's okay to dream.

I had so much fun watching my thumb-sized ranchus grew up, I've been wanting to re-live the experience with a new batch. This time, however, Allan bought me a pair of Ryukins from that LFS near Kovan.

They're 1 1/2 inch in body length. Intensely red (let's hope it remains so) and impressively healthy looking.

They're in a bare 2 feet tank with just 6 inches of water (about 30 litres) and 2 little sponge filters. A heater keeps the water temp from falling below 27°C at night in the air-conditioned room.

I feed them non-stop with chroma. They're still NOT eating frozen bloodworms I threw in. I'm still contemplating if feeding live bloodworms is worth the risks and troubles.

Daily 80% water change. tongue.gif

Keeping my fingers crossed.

Watch out; Ryukin competitors - buddha wants to play. biggrin.gif

Oh I'm also wondering if there's any special diet that helps develop their hump and body shape to the fullest?

How I wish I have an answer but unfortunately I have never come across any articles on the subject of enlarging the hump. Based on my limited knowledge on Ryukin, the hump is genetically determined. I can pretty accurately select a Ryukin with potential for a good hump. Unfortunately, I can not tell that when the Ryukins are as small as those I have now. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hope these will have potential. Meanwhile I want to make sure the Ryukin will not be fat but muscular instead.

Hikari Lionhead is good for headgrowth. Would feeding it to my Ryukins give them a wen? smile.gif Maybe I should try Hikari Wheat Gem which has a beautiful Ryukin printed on its packaging? tongue.gif
