egwinh
what about this one?

The first piece looks more pleasing. Good smooth curve. However it is inbalanced. Might have or is already showing head down syndrome. Tail looks slightly big too. Picture unclear but I suspect those are blood streaks at the tail. Not sure, but looks like there is a tear at the tail tip

Did the 2nd fish just recovered from fin rot? The edge of pelvic fin is black, which suggests that it is not living in a good environment. Probably just recovered from sickness or it is stressed. There also an unfortunate cut at the tail. Not a good speciment.

yeah ..... youre right the picture is unclear......

Great headgrowth on these fish.

How old are they?

Puts me in mind of Uno TVRs. They have similar headgrowth, especially on the cheeks/funtan, although that's the end of the similarity to Uno TVR.

Overall nice fish. Especially No 1.

it's really difficult how to show you all in the photos how the first fish buffalo head vibrates when it swims.

I think the fish is about less than a year, theyre 8cm long. and they are very reactive too

beautiful headgrowth on the fish, hope you wouldn't mind sharing your feeding schedule?
egwinh
the first fish buffalo is really growing........ and it's growing inside her mouth also.... would this be a problem?
egwinh

this is #1 now, she has become more solid, her wen doesnt move anymore as she swims...

she's been laying eggs...... and i feel its getting very difficult now for her to pass 10cm body length. I put her in 5ft tank w/ other 4 ranchus..

5ft 5 ranchus < 10cm is a luxury, mine 1ft 2 ranchus of size ~ 15cm biggrin.gif

Fish should grow to ~ 16cm, if good ~ 18 - 20cm (if not genetically retarded) if you do it right. yes.gif
Clue: Pump the right food with lots of exercise in clean fresh water wink.gif
egwinh
how would you make goldfish exercise? make big flowrate in the tank? how many liter/hr is enough ?

i feed them 5 times a day.... and the flowrate in the tank is 200 liter / hr

is your fish 15cm is including the tail ??
egwinh
dear Gerrard8,

if you like to see the eye, what about my other fish shown in my avatar ??
egwinh
all,

impressive head, cheek growth with beautiful scale alignment peace.gif

do u keep it in green water, since your tank is near the window??
egwinh
yes, she is in green water.... almost nitrate free...

she just dropped eggs this morning, i think the quality would be bad cause she is still too young...

i recommend green water to all goldfish lovers!!!!!

i really admire u and all the other bros with tok kon goldfish. realli show grade class good_very.gif

because my goldfish reared for almost 1 yr from 6cm now only at 9cm (including fins) mad.gif

maybe someday i'll invest in better (more expensive) goldfish, which will burn a hole in my pocket sweatingbullets.gif
