Are japanese golden ryukins rare?
I would say yellow with the type of intensity you are seeing in those two fish are rare however yellow fish is much more common on the single tailed varieties. I am just starting to see it on the twin tailed varieties. If you go to raingarden.us you will see this color in several of his fish.
Interesting. I will check out raingarden.us
Has anyone else seen ryukins in this color?
Lovely color. Would love to have a fish that has that color one of two or three colors.
Someday I'll have more space and a bigger tank and introduce my two pals to a golden friend.
I have seen that colour quite often on Commets and Kio's down here but never in a fancy goldfish before.
Beautiful color.... would be rare to see a real quality ryukin type with this color. This fish in the pics don't have much of a ryukin hump.
Does anyone know if those fish will change colors like other goldfish do?
I have both a yellow hibuna and a wakin from Raingarden and they retain their vibrant color for years ...
2Tosakin are these pics of your fish?
Edit: just saw your thread from December about them. Where did you get these guys. The color is splendid.
They are filling out nicely and maintaining that gorgeous golden yellow color

Can we get another side-view photo of them? That color is still fantastic.
Thank you I will get another side view picture up
About a year and a half ago, I purchased a single tail from Steve @ Raingarden (other goldfish section), as a juvenile fish it was nearly all yellow, with a white belly(I think it was one of his Pua'a line that didn't quite conform to his personal standards for the line). Almost all of the yellow on her sides turned white, but she still retains the vibrant yellow on her lips,top, and some in all of her fins. She's by far my largest fish now @ approximately 6"(was under 3" when purchased). I'll try to get a few updated snapshots of her (as well as my Panda, Fantail, and black moore) later today when I clean my aquariums. ...Still drinking coffee & trying to wake up.
