They all are so adorable. I almost think I could have just ranchus and be happy -- almost! :teehee

Thought I'd share of a few of my favorite ranchus both from the present and from years past.

Chunk, a happy LFS find:

Fargo, who I just absolutely adored:

Chowder, still going strong today:

King Triton, also alive and well (and SO HUGE):

Fargo is my favorite too. My gosh he/she is such a bright shade of white. That is the most beautiful fish I have ever seen.

There's some gorgeous ranchus here. They all seem very happy and healthy.

I've never seen ranchu at our LFS before, but as I was restocking my tank this summer after my beloved Spot died they happened to get some in and I couldn't resist. These are my babies. Definitely 'pet quality' and not as pretty as many of yours, but I love them anyway.

Here's all three in a group shot. Beatrice is orange and white and has a small wen. Isis is nearest the front glass and only has one tiny orange spot on her right gill. Nephthys is further back and has a lot more orange than Isis.

This is the best shot I have of Isis (Peaches the ryukin and Beatrice can both also be seen).

This is Beatrice. She looks oddly pinched and thin in this photo. She's much rounder now, I should bet a better photo.

And Nephthys

Her name fits her well, it's very cute! I'm a sucker for wild-types. I absolutely adore them!

Here are some of my former ranchus. Georgia doesn't my Dexter look a lot like your little Squash. He's started his color change here and eventually ended up completely orange. He was my favourite of all my chus. At about 3yrs. he developed SB issues and ended up scooting around on his tummy. He lasted about a year and half like that before he developed a bacterial infection and passed away. :no:

Are you saying that one of those ranchus was the same color as mine? It's so crazy how much they can change. I'm sad to hear of his passing. :(
