Caught my eye - cute little guy

Recommended Posts

Got my new 55 gallon so wanted to add ONE more Ryukin. Got Rhonda into the 55 gallon and Slate chunked into the 20 gallon, leaving me the 10 gallon to set up for a QT of a new fish. Got Prazi and salt and a filter and etc. ready to go. Didn't use all this the first go around, but will try a bit harder this time.

Here's the guy that I want. He reminds me of Rhonda. Cute little guy.

From what I can till he is a pretty fish.  Love to see him once he is in the 10 gallon.

Very cute. Have you taken him home yet?

 

He looks like he's in transition from dark to orange. He might eventually be all orange. I've had a few transition like this:

Thanks, everyone. I'm hoping to snag him Wednesday! He reminds me of Rhonda so much! Rhonda actually had way less black on her when I got her and the black is fading up her tail and down her dorsal etc. More black coming in on her.

I just really want him because he reminds me of Rhonda and I think they'd look good together :)

Lovely little fish ;). I'd be expecting all orange after awhile as well, but it's still beautiful!

Thanks. I'd not mind if he turned all orange. He's still a cute little guy. Hopefully he and my two can all get along. Really hope I can snag him.

Can you tell if the fish has all metallic scales or has matte and metallic scales?  In the latter case the matte scales look almost like colored skin and the metallic scales like sequins/

She showed me like 5 photos of the guy - she took them spur of the moment but it does look like he has a mix of matte and metallic scales from what I saw. He is a Ryukin by the way. He doesn't quite give off the sheen of a 100% metallic, but he might be. Hopefully I'll have him soon and be able to tell for sure. Hopefully you weren't asking because there is some sort of issue with that scale type. I'm not sure what is exactly normal in Ryukins as far as scale types go.

Nacreous fish maintain color better than metallics.  That can include black.

Ah, gotcha. Well I don't mind if he turns all orange. I didn't think that he would, though as Rhonda mimics his color pattern and she's getting MORE black and not less. In other news, I am not well versed on color changes etc so maybe even Rhonda will turn all orange.
