Could Pebble be a Ryukin?

5 posts in this topic

My fish Pebble has changed a lot since I first got her. I've noticed that she's developing a little more of a curve to her back than my orandas and I was wondering if anyone thinks she may be a ryukin or maybe a ryukin cross? Or just a fantail with a slightly deeper body. I've seen tiny baby ryukins that already have a very prominent hump on their back when they're pretty much still just fry, but I've seen other baby ryukins that just looks like fantails when they're young. I've had Pebble for about 5 months now, and I don't really know how old she was when I got her, but probably not very old. 

Picture from 5 months ago:

If you skip to around 3:20 in the video you can see a closer shot of Pebble.

She may be mixed with Ryukin or just a Ryukin with a flat hump. Fantail breed standard states that there should be no hump but many fantails I've seen do have them. She's very pretty!

My Rhonda here is a "camel hump" type Ryukin, while Slate and my other Ryukin Abanayabar (RIP) had much weaker humps.
