Normally I look down on the fish in my horse trough outside so today I pulled the Ranchu to check on them and get some pictures.

Enjoy! peace.gif

Rare to find such beauties in a faraway land like the US.

They must be horsing around happily in your horse trough.How big is a horse trough?(Sorry for asking,we dont have horses here except for the turf club biggrin.gif )Any filtration or just natural brewed green?Color look amazingly good for all that carry the reds. good_very.gif

Thanks goldrush. I've had them all for a year or more but I'm pretty sure they originated in China. smile.gif Except for the first one which came from Japan. My horse trough is really more elaborate than it sounds. It hold about 275 us gallons, has two bottom drains and a mechanical and trickle filter. Here's an older picture:

Hi Tomo... hopefully this gives you an idea. It's a picture from when it was first set up before water. You can see the bottom drains, two returns at either end on the back and the skimmer and overflow in the center on the back.

Thanks Damo. I haven't really measured them. I would guess the bigger ones are roughly 7 inches. Sadly, the Lionchu passed about a month ago. It happened so quickly, her belly kept swelling and she died. sad.gif She was amazing how fast she grew. When I first got her she was only half the size of the bigger red and white ranchu. I guess she was a shooting star.
