The Ochiba shigure,which literally means fallen leaves over autumn shower is one of the most beloved koi under the Kawarimono classification .It has a blue grey background with yellow to brown markings which can interlace with ginrin scalation to give an additional reflective ambience.


This is how a Ginrin Ochiba Shigure looks like

Now imagine if you can find a ryukin with an Ochiba’s marking and reflective scalation…..

This is what I found

Colours similar, but ginrin scalation? I think not. Only plain metallic. Very nice fish though. Maybe u wanna take a top view photo to compare it with the koi? yes.gif

Unfortunately no hmm.gif It is too young.The fish is about 6 inches including its tail

Let me show this short video with its calico companion and perhaps you can see its unsual reflective scalation





You maybe right that such coloration is usually unstable,but it may turn up with more unusual discoloration rolleyes.gif

Notice that individual scales are speckled with black spot on its shiny surface uhm.gif

Junior size, around 13-14cm.
Retail price around SGD 200 more or less (because I haven't tried to bargain it). biggrin.gif
Imported from Tung Hoi.

Thanks peace.gif

Hi Bro Chan, SGD 200 for a good quality fish from Tung Hoi is quite cheap, IMHO.

How come it darkens so much? Food or lack of sunlight?
chandramerpati
Hi Doc,

I prefer it to be black. tongue.gif
Becoz black ryukin is very rare and almost impossible to be found. shiok.gif

Btw, It looks gaining bulk body and stronger dorsal fin.
But, I saw a flip on its right tail? As long as I recall, it wasn't there at the beginning.

Anyway, how do you keep it? Greenwater?
Feed with bloodworms or pellets?

Thanks peace.gif

I've seen lots of black goldfish turn grey, but I've never seen a grey goldfish turn black. Do you think that is a special individual or a new line? Or maybe you have a new secret way to care for them.

Now it has a double flip on either side of its tail end hmm.gif

Most of my fishes are NOT housed in GREEN WATER.(Only the the fishes which I have shown in the oxygen burn thread are in green)


All fishes kept in the FGT indoor are fed pellet and paste food without bloodworms

Actually this fish was sold to me as a KINGINRIN ryukin laugh.gif .The scales suppose to be metallic and reflective but I guess it is pretty unstable in its trait.No secret weapon cluebat.gif .I think fishes kept in the dark has greater expansion and concentration of melanophores that could darken the fish considerably.
