    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.

    Thanks Amy
    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

    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!

    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...

    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.

    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
