    Just a suggestion....

    Didn't see an acronym list on this site. Being a noob on the subject of goldfish, maybe we can start a sticky and Acronyms can be added so folks, like myself, will know what types of goldfishes we are talking about... i.e.....

    TVR............____________
    VT.............____________

    etc..........

    LFS = Local Fish Store
    TVR = Top View Ranchu
    SVR = Side View Ranchu?

    Usually these are only used for baby top view ranchus:

    BBR = black baby ranchu, when they're still olive colors; under 2 months of age
    CBR = color baby ranchu, when they start to color; usually around 2-4 months
