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.
Do you have a photo? It would be nice to compare and see if there is really a similarity!

When I gave it away that time I havn't got digi cam yet, also havn't got camera phone yet.

Been asking my friend to send me a photo of the ranchu for ages but he never did. See what I can do.

From the pic, seems that the mehaba, sehaba wide and the peduncle thick. Tail from whta I can tell opens nicely. Wen growth is good, is of a good rectangular shape.
birdshit,
Do you know the english translation of mehaba and sehaba? Noticed you used these two words in other post. Appreciate if you could use english translation for easy reading. Thanks.

Mehaba is distance between the eyes.

Sehaba is the back.

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
What makes you all think the fish is jap and raised in Singapore?

We may be wrong but this is what most of us experience with our ranchus and also observing others. There is generally a very distinct profile of Japanese bred ranchu as compared to those breed outside Japan. Maybe it is the cool weather, maybe the food, maybe the water. I don't really know.

Let me give you an example. I am a Chinese and so are most of us. But somehow the Chinese nationals that I see in Singapore and China are somehow different from the Singaporean Chinese. Somehow you can easily tell them apart though there may be blur area. Sometimes a Japanese ranchu may look like a Thai ranchu and a Thai ranchu may look like a Japanese ranchu.

Butchufly, if you want to know more, come and join us for our gathering. We can all learn together. It will be fun and enjoyable. If you need to break the ice, I can invite you for kopi.

Sometimes it is very difficult to really explain why a ranchu looks Jap/Thai/Sing. It is the very subtle differences that tells them apart.

But not all the time we can be right .... esp when the quality differences are now rather insignificant nowadays.

Think observation is key to appreciation of the ranchus.

It is a constant learning process
