Hey guys remember the toy most of us bought at last year's MFGC(My fancy goldfish compe)

Here's a pic of it to recap

IPB Image

Yepp it's gathering dust alright.But everyday I stare at it for a couple of minutes to visualise in my mind so that my living blacks would one day be as black in intensity as well as maintaining an acceptable shape as with this wooden replica.The day has arrived!!!!!


First I choose a fish with the nearest body shape to my wooden replica

This is one of them

Now I lower the wooden replica into a 1 footed tank

Then I introduce my subject into the measurement tank.

Here are the various angled pic taken.

Behold!!!!This is a classic one

one over another to give the best comparison to date

How's that for a comparison???????? flex.gif flex.gif flex.gif


PS:Just for your information the wooden replica is about 3.5 inch across its greatest diameter if size does matter!

Woaw, your ranchu is really beautiful. Really nice shape, colour and head growth. It might be unbelievable, but I never saw a black ranchu in Mauritius ... Well, I never saw one in my entire life

Hi Doc,

That is what my Black Ranchu dream to be. shiok.gif shiok.gif shiok.gif
I've been searching for black ranchu at that quality for the last 2 months and find no-one. hmm.gif
I am really jealous to see your blackie. tongue.gif

Would you believe that this fish is kept indoor with only 2 hours of morning sun every day.I manage to snap snap with the mornin sun to my advantage for the above footage.

So what is the Darkest Secret?

Hi Doc

I believe that it is a matter of GENETICS.
I have below-average-quality black ranchu which I kept for the last 3 months.
I fed them with Hikari Lionhead and they are still black. biggrin.gif

Hi Doc,

Beautiful black ranchu. If you didn't mention that the other piece is a wooden specimen...initial glance might not be noticeable. Thanks for sharing.
