    Treasure's color change (after only a month!)

    Usually stabilizing hereditary black, to keep it from fading to chocolate or blue. You can't stop genetics from taking its course, but some have learned to slow it down. Thats why getting young fish is good, you get to enjoy the transitional phases.

    Treasure's color change (after only a month!)

    Fry are born bronze for camouflage from predators. Technically it's considered black, like BBR (black baby ranchu) uncolored. As the guanine fades from the scale, it becomes dull and a darker black. As guanine returns to the scale and skin underneath with maturity, the color and luster of the scale push the dull black out. Young fish with a lot of white after there initial color change may due this several times.
  3. Terrific job as always by the way Ms.Lis
  4. Lucky ur not in Alaska, there's a large population of female Grizzly's that may take offense to that. Bet ur trash would never stay in the cans after that.

    Fancy Goldfish Dealers

    I've had great luck with Cynthia at East Coast Ranchu. She's a lovely lady that helps any way possible. And buying from her, I know that the fish has had the upmost care prior to coming into my possession.

    Harvest Festivals and Goldfish Prizes

    I would take the approach of concern, usually the higher ups dont respond positively to aggression. How the commercial representation of these animals lead in most cases to demise. A fish in a bag or bowl is like letting a kitten or puppy live in a shoe box.

    Lis's 180g dirted goldfish tank!

    Gorgeous work, can definitely tell all the care and work you put in by how beautiful both your tank and fish are. Thanks for letting us enjoy them with you.
