Full Version: A Good Ryukin

Tis not often we see a fish of exceptional quality
Far too often we are swarmed with sheer quantity
A ryukin of majestic pose is a rare find
This one I show is one of its kind
Dorsal erect to get your attention
Rest of fins,balance,equal not to mention
There exist only one possible flaw
A single anal that may break competition law
Colours are vivid and sharply demarcated
Body 's not overfat nor seem emaciated
The following pics will show its strength
5 inch and no more is perhaps its length

This one shows its marvellous scalation

This one shows equal balance

This one shows what's on the other side

good_very.gif two thumps up for me doc!! i'm not really into ryukins, but this one is soooo noce, specially its head and hump. gee doc u must be very good at selecting fish!! drool.gif in australia we could only dream of this quality!

Hi Doc,

In my opinion, this one is very good, almost perfect. High hump with a nice curve, round body, tiny head, deep red and almost symmetrical pattern. Singel anal fin is still acceptable.

This one must go for a competition ;-)

Congrats!

Though the grass may seem greener at this end
Still the hunt can be frustrating ,not to mention the price you are willing to spend
It is not my intention here to poison all
Neither my purpose to drive most up the wall
Teaching can be a painful lesson
Learning can thus be a bitter medicine
Goldfish keeping is a continual education to share
It is just not simple feeding nor frivolous care
It takes many years to come this far
And just as many to overcome failures,disappointments with unlimited battled scars
The internet,these forums have opened to many,many doors
Not just for the uninitiated but the experienced who desire to learn more......

Your Ryukin is really amazing, here in the U.S. it is next to impossible to find anything
even close to a fish like yours.

What are your thoughts on breeding your fish?

blush.gif Over here we are spoit of choice in the number of quality ryukins.But to find an exceptional one is a taunting task still.The time and effort demanded on breeding ryukin or any goldfish is too taunting one as well.I let the Chinese do the breeding while I do the selection biggrin.gif

Doc, an update on the development of the ryukin pls.

I can get over your Ryukin it looks like your fish just got finished lifting weights.

Your Ryukin is so amazing (by any countrys standard) it seems a shame not to take advantage of those genes.

Maybe there is someone in your area you can make a deal with and they can breed it for you.

Then this time next year you could have a fish just like it with 2 anal fins.

Hi doc,

This fish tends to swim nose-up. Isn't it?

Your fish is perfect.

This is the fish that everone has in there mind when they think of a GREAT Ryukin.

This is the Ryukin people are looking for everytime they visit a LFS or a breeder.
