So many pretty fish... Unfortunate I only got to see the Ryukins from the top. I LOVE the bubble eyes waggling.

Wow amazing video! Thank you so much for sharing. It was interesting to see the broad tails coming back into fashion and there were some short body varieties of some breeds that were long bodies previously, very interesting to see the breeding trends :)

I have heard this before same thing with Wakins. I have a LFS that sells Wakins in the spring. So when I get that pond ready I will be giving them a try :)

Looks like they used black oranda genes for the black Jikin. Notice the pitting in the face/head and the extra roundness. The tail isn't right at all for a Jikin either... But he's still a gorgeous fish. When you're adding new colors, the first of the new strain won't be perfect. So awesome to see fish you'd never see here.
