I bought from that HORRIBLE seller. The fish I got don't look like Ryukins AT ALL. They look like $2 tiny Walmart fantail culls. He didn't deliver by the LAST expected delivery date either. LATE. He was lucky I didn't leave a negative feedback. He got mad at me for being irritated and placed a $1 offer on one of my items to annoy me.

He also had that listing up for months and said the fish were over 8 months old when the listing went up. So he's got TINY 1 gram fish that are almost a year old. Bleh. Not good at all. 

I have two of them myself. They are SO runty looking and unappealing that I didn't even tell anybody I got them. They'll never grow into decent fish like the ones he claimed spawned them.

I don't know what to do with them. Don't truly want them but as a fish lover must care for them. He doesn't know how to cull or raise fry. THIS is what Ryukin babies should look like... And they are younger than his by quite a bit!

I'll care for mine too. Wasn't looking for show fish, but wanted fish that looked like decent little Ryukins. Oh well. Sorry for the rant!

Thank you. I don't have space for them inside even though I can probably go small since they're tiny. They're being QT in a netted tub on the back porch. It's really too late to put such tiny fish outside but I don't have the resources or whatnot to keep them inside. They will go with my tough fish like Callisto and Robin etc once they're done. Hope they don't die. They're ridiculously small. 

Made this video October 5th the day they arrived. Mind you I ordered them September 26th. The colorful one especially looks nothing like a Ryukin. He's totally long bodied! Bleh!

Me too. I REALLY wanted Ryukins. Let's put our Ryukin love together. We will say they're just shrimpy Ryukins that need some protein and love. They will get cute humps. They MUST! But in all seriousness... They're probably Ryukins... Just poor quality unculled ones. Maybe they'll get humps. We shall see. I will say one thing... Same as the video shows... both fish are totally spry and healthy looking. No complaints there at all. Mine are still in QT and seem perfectly fine. So small though. My betta fish is bigger than them.
