Damo
Well!! It's pretty difficult to have an active discussion on such beauties as I have nothing much to say other that I wish they were in my aquarium.

What are theircsizes Doc?? I personally prefer the one with less red, which is a bit harder to find.
white horse T1
the white one has become rounder; shape wise it has improved.

Doc,

You are well equipped with how much they have grown...but as observed from your recent Calicos, these Ryukins have also improved in their colour. Specially the blacks have come out more....that's a real plus.

I think the SECRET lies in that home grown wall algae of yours....for such wonderful colour improvements!

WRONG........These two are kept in my indoor FGT with no access to any algae...... not even algae diet supplement! .The morning sun only hit the water for 2 hrs the most.I gave alot of high protein paste food with cyclopeze as color enhancer.That's all.The water need to change rellgiously sweatingbullets.gif


PS My indoor and outdoor setup are miles apart so I can't rotate with ease their change of haibtat

Another 4 months has passed and all in all I have kept this pair for over 9 months.I have shut down my indoor facility and all fish are now housed outdoor.The white fish has just surpassed 7 and half inches(mouth to tail) after gaining some mass in the outdoor enclosure.These are the latest update

Now everyone in Singapore is familiar with our national icon.The Merlion,an emblem designed for Singapore Tourist Promotion Board which was later idolised as a symbol of Singapore.Created as a lion with a fish body resting on a sea of waves,the merlion is often depicted with a spout of water emitting from the lion's mouth.

This one guard the mouth of the singapore river

Well,with a similar candid shot of this ryukin.This picture shows the majestic pose of this ryukin doing a merlion puke.A self created emblem of goldrush and an instant icon which I can call it my very own laugh.gif

Hi Lawrence


We need many months before to prepare any fish for any competition unless you want to buy off hand a competition fish which of course will not be of competitive price biggrin.gif I just got news that competition is in Sept.We got some 60 odd days before D-Day H hours.From now to then,anything can happen as we painstakingly toll ourselves together with our fish to attain ultimate glory.That's the fun of it tongue.gif Notwithstanding Murphy's Law exercising its presence,you should be able to see some of these specimens on display peace.gif I must add that ..........provided they PEAK and not PIT in the days to come sweatingbullets.gif


Happy preparing

Doc, my I know whats the size of the tank u're keeping your gold fish in and how often of water changing is considered "religious".

Cheers.
