    I really like this guy but I choose him out of a large group, the majority had eyes you couldn't see and one had eyes that were like popping out. Sorry if the picture is bad but black isn't a easy colour to take photos of XD Got him for £14 so can't complain and I really like him. His tail seems a little big and the camera made his back look very angular but no expert so what do people think?

    nice black thai ranchu however tail set is definitely off. It seems that most thai black ranchu eyes are like this

    What do you mean by off? My camera angle is terrible. I think the black ranchu could be bred to different standards but he was in a store so not sure of his history.

    Black Ranchu are bred for colour not the normal attributes of Ranchu. The fish looks like a regular black Ranchu. The camera angle may cause the problem but the tail looks to be biased to one side.

    from the top angle the tail looks fused. I like the fish very much nonetheless

    Body shape looks nice and the black looks nice and thick. It's a side view ranchu but above view pics always help show symmetry for future reference

    Black Thai ranchu come on the market here in South Africa from time to time. Tails always seem to be oversized, anal fins are always single or mismatched, and many display what appears to be a membrane which grows over part of the eye. It's really tough finding good quality black Thai ranchu in my part of the world.
