Beautiful Goldfish

Recommended Posts

Those crown pearscale pics are making me rethink only keeping tiku pearlscales. If I could find crown pearlies like THOSE, I'd have them in a heartbeat!

?who knows how the fish feels.lol If only they can talk? seems like an adage of China. Can you speak Chinese?

The fish are gorgeous, but I don't understand the photos of the fish being held out of the water, is that at all safe?

This is a stunning specimen, nice crisp colors with clear borders between the white background and the orange... but frankly, there's something oddly suggestive about the pattern the orange patches form.

Are you implying this suggestive pattern is similar to what was done to jikins as they alleged, Man Yu? That is what I was thinking when you pointed that out.

I was honestly thinking something more lewd, but maybe that's where my mind goes?

I don't think this is a "created" pattern...if only because the pectoral fins also have orange streaks in the middle. Fin color can't be created or tweaked, can it? I understand how they do it with the body...but fins?

No, it has nothing to do with being lewd or any lewd acts. I was thinking of the claims by some sites jikins had their scales plucked selectively to retain only the white and red colors in fixed patterns. I was wondering if Man Yu was stressing this point.

Ok,not to rain on anyone's parade,BUT,I think it's just awful-what they do to these fish :cry1 I think the bubbles are mean and cruel,and now,there's talk about plucking scales?OMG,It's inhumane,and I'd like to see a few of the breeders w/ their tear ducts so swollen that all they can do is look up,and have to carry around big bubbles on their faces!!!Sorry about the rant,but it's the 1 thing,that I know about anyway,that really chaps my butt in gf keeping :yikes

I have never owned the idea that this fish is affected before. But maybe you are right,cause i haven't seen this fish personally. I just download the pics. And i heard of plucking scales in Japan, inhuman behaviors like that. I won't buy those fish. I hope the curel things will be ceased.

Our very own database of jikins. I could care less if the jikin is not the standard red-and-white. Jikins of any color is just as beautiful as what they considered to be standard variety. See my reasons below further influenced by my findings.

http://www.kokosgoldfish.com/JIKIN.html

I guess it's confirmed they do pluck the scales in jikins to get the fixed color patterns.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jikin

The jikin may not be born with this coloration; instead, the skin's white pigmentation is occasionally produced artificially by removing the red scales when the fish still young. This is usually done at about three months by either plucking off any red scales on the body with the use of tweezers or by bleaching with oxalic acid.

http://www.exoticgoldfish.net/breeds-jikin.html

Unlike the Wakin, there are very exacting standards for the color patterns of Jikin, and so they are rare and expensive. Since the color pattern is so difficult to achieve, breeders often "cheat" by manually renmoving red scales that dont fit the pattern. In Japan this is not considered "cheating", since all that matters is what the final product looks like. It is sort of like a fish version of cosmetic surgery. The removed scales will not grow back, so the new pattern will be permanent.

Yes, the term "suggestive" could have been double-edged depending on what context it is used.
