Nice ranchu there ... basiscally carrying all the neccessary features to make it a nice specimen.

Color seems kinda off ... but could be those fish with "underlying" color which is rather special. Cant really explain this feature but have seen it on some fishes ... that is of cos I assess this fish correction from the pic

Jap? Thai? Sing?

Think is a Jap ... again ... same as the rest ... think is raised up in Singapore waters

Hi just to ask a question on this fish; for a TVR is this fish a little short? I was told TVR should ideally be of the following proportion by lfs:

Ratio of: Head = 1, Body = 2.5, Tail = 1

Please advice if I've been snooked, thanks.

You are correct if you are following the general guidelines. However, long or short depend very much of personal preference and there is no absolute right or wrong.

Some like the body to have a ratio of 2 (short body)whereas some like to have body ratio as high as 3 (long body).

Either a ratio of 1:2:1 or 1:2.5:1 is ok

shorter body ones with ratio 1:1.5:1 tend to be less desirable amongst those keeping for comp ... but the fish itself will look very cute and chubby

A very nice piece of ranchu. I would also think that this is a Japanese ranchu. Had been in good hands but the current owner does not keep it well thats why the colour is so bad.

Just another point to add. This ranchu looks very similar to an Ishikawa that I used to own(Ishikawa was told by the person that sold me the ranchu, so I cannot verify). The main difference is that mine the tail is not so beautiful and that the head growth is slightly sharper and not as broad as this one. Mine the colour is very kwat red one. When stationery, it will always point its head down by about 15 degrees. Swmming is excellent. When I bought it last year, it was bbr. But after change colour, sian liao. Gave it away because I love full red ranchu. Those type that is red from head to tail, top to bottom.
