      Hi Fred I am a new Ranchu Mama. I bought 8 ranchu babies from Cynthia at east coast Ranchu. I have had them a week and today one of my babies passed away. He was weak from the start really odd shaped.. she gave me him for free because of him being deformed.. anyways.. another of the babies .. when I say babies I mean 7monthes old.. This other Ranchu's Head went from being orange to a clearer red color.. I am just stressed right now.. I cycled my tank with Comets and Cynthia is thinking maybe there is some sort of pathogen at work here.. HELP Fred what should I do.. should I take them out of the home they are in now and put them in a plastic tote ?

      Awesome! Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks.

      Hi Fred: I tried the search engine to see if you had a dictionary of commonly used terms or an abbreviation decoder on this site. It's probably in front of my eyes, but I can't seem to locate it. I'm following most of the posts, but there are oftentimes abbreviations that are difficult to decipher. For example, what is a "BBR"? I think this is one of the best hobby sites I have ever seen. The spirit of the group is so kind and generous ~ much of it I am observing comes from tactful moderating, which you do with such panache. Thanks.

      Hi again, just to thank you for your help with pm from Icthius - turns out it was a misunderstanding.
      We have exchanged a few pm's, so hopefully matter closed.
      Thanks again

      You continue to tease me with these links to Wakin, but I may have positive news tomorrow - I've found some Wakin in UK, They're supposed to be delivered tomorrow - if all is well I'll post some pics - I've not seen them so feeling a little nervous as to quality - not an ideal start with Wakin I know, but they're so rare here..

      Liked all your posts showing links to Wakin .......obviously I'm in the wrong place (UK) - still keeping fingers crossed to acquire some here - maybe I'll start a new trend breeding Wakin!
      Wonder why they're not popular here

      Hi Fred,

      This picture made me smile today, and I thought perhaps I could share it on the appreciation thread.

      The picture is by Hinata, a Japanese ranchu hobbyist, and is on her blog page (Hinata-Zirushi) here: http://yaplog.jp/sudukeika/archive/1924. A very cute face of Japanese ranchu and interesting details of the head growth.
