shiok.gif My SVR have a small wen(8 SVR), i have treated with green water and high protein foods, but still little wen growth.
but i'm suspicious that my fish didn't have any gene for wen growth

- size : 2 inches max
- great body shape but poor wen growth (only tint of bumps)
- buy in Tanjungpinang at Rp. 15.000 (about SGD 2.20) the LFS owner said that it was imported from singapore

my question are..
1.does cheap ranchu's can still have good wen growth? like the ones from China (huge wen all over the head, Kinda babyface look shiok.gif
2. how much typical price for BBR from china and thai? (2 inches)
3.hikari lionhead, will it help?

thank you so muuuchh yes.gif

Hi, what colour are your ranchu? Calico ranchu can sometimes be more prone to smaller head growth, especially cheaper ones. 2 inches is still very small but there should be at least an impression of a wen, ranchus have a more refined head growth than lionheads so it will never be that big in comprison. In my experience hikari lionhead does seem to help with head growth as well as general body form if fed regularly but there has to be something there in the way of wen to build uppon i.e. it wont give a small wen fish massive headgrowth. hope this helps.

Hi, orandadan, thx for the reply
Well, majority of my ranchu is a pure yellow, orange and yellow, white and a small dot of orange on body and red dot on top of head, i think its a basic ranchu colour, tomorrow i'll post the picture to make sure..
well on the head there's a slight shape of wen but it just like older ryukin but it's bolder, not a lump of good beautifull fat like my orandas..
thx again

Looking forward for your pics.

not a problem laugh.gif Was going to suggest that you posted some pics, if you can, try for side/profile views (its going to be difficult if your fish are anywhere near as hyper as mine) tongue.gif Dan
