Full Version: Budo Koromo Ranchu
RafflesGold Forums > Discussion Area > Fancy Goldfish
goldrush
Budo means grapes in Japanese. It is a very rare variant of a Koromo(a variety of koi which literally means robed). The effect on the Hi(red) is that one gets clusters of blue and black which create a distinct purplish grape like hue.

This is a classique budo koromo

Now imagine a Budo on a ranchu...........what would you get???

Here is one of the rare find of the day.Hardly crossing one inch,this fish has a major tear on the left of its tail but because of its unique coloration,I was too tempted to purchase despite the obvious tear wacko.gif

This is the head on view

Very nice doc. I saw a ranchu like that in a shop, but the ranchu was white with a red back when it was received. After a few weeks, there is black covering the red. I thought that the ranchu was healing from some kind of disease. Should I get it??? Is the black colour temporary?

If the same original fish received has no black and develops some black marking,chances are that it is stress related or recovering from a recent bout of infection.This discoloration is transient so you will be disappointed that it will disappear over a very short period of time.

Hi Doc,
You have the ability of turning around simple fish into handsome once,what are your water change and feeding regime,was curious to know
with warm regards

Hi Doc,

Really regret to see the color-changing. :sad

Btw, regarding the second fish, is it a female?
If yes, I do think she is a good seed to be bred.
Nice shape, nice tail, nice wen, nice coloration, and looks healthy.
Congrats Doc. good_very.gif

Thank you for your nice comment.These two fishes have been kept indoor since arrival.They are fed some 5 times aday on dry feed alternate with some paste food.I do water change twice weekly.

hi.gif Like to share what it didn't turn out to be(I advocate transparency rolleyes.gif ).This is just a case of shedding of its juvenile discoloration.Was abit disappointed by the speed of its loss.Infact within a week upon its arrival,its melanophores just simply degenerate........ ohmy.gif

As for the second fish,didn't notice its sex yet. rusure.gif

Yo doc I dont think its a case of shedding juvenile discoloration.Too old for that.
More like a case of black shades due to stress, like the one here

This paper is a little difficult to read, but discusses color changes and when they can happen.

Thank you steve for the above paper on genetic and color depigmentation in goldfish

For the benefit of those who finds the paper difficult to digest,here is a concised version

You need a double recessive genes for the goldfish to retain its juvenile melanophores throughout their life.The initiation of depigmentation is controlled by a series of genes.When dominant genes are in the homozygous condition(represented by HH),complete depigmentation occurs within a year.Heterozygous condition(represented by Hh) takes longer depending on the number of dominant genes.The higher the amount,the faster the depigmentation.Finally it would only take the condition of a double recessive genes(represented by hh) for your fish to retain its juvenile color throughout its life.

So cp I'm sure the above fish decides to depigment,probably due to its dominant genes being catalytically activated by a sudden change in environment or water conditions.Certainly not a case of melanophore migration that is stress related or recovering from a bout of recent infection.
