Show you this unique piece of ryukin with unstable coloration.The art is to maintain as long as possible the contrasting coloration of red and black.Ultimately it will revert back to full red in due course.Currently the blacks appear very strong after it was nurtured from its inital weak black tone when it first arrived.


Here's the video

Now I made some still shots of this piece and you can see its rich coloration with elegant demarcation





Rippling effects

Such a beautiful piece... All your Ryukins swim great! Despite the depth of the body and short tail. Do you do something special to keep them from tilting head?

No ,I don't resort to any physical manipulation to hold them up laugh.gif But I must confess that the vehicle of choice for me is paste food to facilitate good digestivity and better assimilation .

In the instruction you said to bind the grounded powder with the Egg. do you use whole egg or just the egg white (albumen )

Thanks a lot Doc...

Egg yolk is jampacked with nutrients ,with 100% carotene(natural color enhancer) and fat soluble vitamins(Vit ADEK)contain in a single egg,so i will never discard it away.I use whole egg to bind the ingredients.
