What do you guys think?
never had a ryukin before. Thought this one had nice form and nice finnage
Very nice young Ryukin. It has a nice hump started and nice head shape. Please repost it again in a few months. I'd like to see it fully grown.
There was also a more white one that I wanted to get but had to control myself haha will definitely make another video in a few months time.
If I'm not wrong, these were imported from thailand
that is a beautiful fish I love the way it carries itself. It is very regal. My favorite fish of yours is that red oranda. fantastic
Haha the oranda was a sympathy purchase from a pet store. I'm glad you like him too!
I'll have to do a wen surgery soon on him which I will document I hope
you do a great job of grooming your fish. I am not a big fan of that wen surgery unless the fish is really suffering. If the wen grows over the eyes and the fish can still find food I do not think it is worth the risk. Maybe I am bias because I love that fish so much
here's an update photo of this ryukin , plus i bought another one shortly after i got this one. i think they are both females though =_= lol

They look like broadtails, very nice
yeah thats what i thought too! but wasnt sure cos didnt think we'd have anything special here in our lfs
yay! now just need to find a male....
with your grooming skills you will brig bring out the best in them
Very nice! They are coming along really well. Thanks for the update!
Great conformation of body and finnage. Excellent coloration. Only flaw is the single anal fin.
OMG, you've got quick eyes. I didn't see that and I still can't see the single anal.
Looked at it later on a computer instead of on my phone. Well, yeah it has a single anal fin! Still very nice ryukins!
really? i think they have double? let me try and take a photo / video of their butts lol
Sometimes I have found my butterflies hard to tell unless they flutter them right... They often keep them clamped and if they are perfectly symmetrical they can look like single. I have one Oranda with single and of course he has the best body and wen go figure...
nope definitely two big anal fins...plus a big poo hahaha
Nice ryukins chocky i have noticed that you don't clean your tank glass of algae any particular reason for that other than goldfish munching on them, by seeing your tank i am also thinking about not cleaning the backside glass of my aquarium.
Yup, I can see the double anals on this vid! Very nice fish!
helps keep water quality in check. those tanks are only 3ft x 1.5ft x 1.5ft and filter only by sponge filters. i do about 80% wc every 5 days. i dont have a test kit but will check the parameters this weekend if i get a chance.
i kinda like having the green walls. my husband hates it though. also these tanks get quite a bit of sun light so the algae grows pretty fast
