just went down to a nearby LFS... found some quite interesting goldfishes... need more opinions before buying... the pics i took using camera phone... biggrin.gif

the 1st pic is a lionhead (7cm) i guess... quote me about SGD $40

the 2nd pic is a chocolate ranchu (12cm)... not so much headgrowth.. very rare color i tot... $80

the 3rd pic, not sure lionhead or ranchu (10cm)... $ 50

hmmm... wat do you guys think? should i buy any of them?? if ryukins, i can be decisive... but for these... not so much confidence.. biggrin.gif

First one looks good. Is that a black patch in the middle of the head? Cute neh!

But I think all the prices too expensive. China imports has very low cost. If 7 cm is from head to tail tip, then it is not worth that price. Maybe about $25 I will buy but my hands reach my pocket will be very unwilling laugh.gif

Does the headgrowth looks like it has potential to cover up the eyes?

And which LFS is this? The prices seem high.

firstly, is that supposed to be lionhead or ranchu ah? if it's a lionhead, IMHO... then should be quite ok... but if it's a ranchu... then die lah... tongue.gif

Although the head is proportionately a little small for a lionhead, the distinctive back arc and tails are clearly features of a real lionhead.

My lousy lionhead. sad.gif

From the pic too, it looks like it has a lionhead's kind of headgrowth too; no pronounced cheeks but the whole head is very round.

I hope the finages are good.

Very majestic! yes.gif

Buy leh... biggrin.gif
