    Such fast growth! I have a itty bitty fantail I have been trying to grow out. He was a rescue from petco and was maybe a inch in total length. Now hes about 3 inches including tail. Hes slowly filling out as well.

    fast growth comes with a catch, as in my case, developed not to best form, belly too big, caudal fins not developed (considering the parents are of very broad tailed), thin peduncle, all due to my set up - not much space to swim.. now it has gone heads down and undergoing white poop treatment..

    you can see difference if fish is moved to better environment, it will definitely thrive.. some are horrified to see overstocked tanks at petshops, sick fishes untreated, i understand and know how difficult it is to maintain a petshop.. first thing fish needs is space - fish shops doesn't have this, treating a sick fish needs resources, time, effort.. some just send them back to the fish supplier..

    yeah I usually find the ones that come from big game pet store grow alot slower. I also have a fish that I raised myself that took off in growth. I tend to keep my goldies in cooler water so i know that also contributes to it as well. I have a pretty solid water change schedule and the tank I have my little fantail in is overstocked by one fish ( That fish will be my boyfriends fish here soon) So I change water on that tank like a maniac

    Gosh the fish grow so much better over there than here. I love his body shape. Seeing that shape here is so rare. I wish I could have one like that.

    we're at the tropics, guess that it is one factor, we can pump feed all year round..
    fish is locally bred but of thai parents (nk farm thailand).. importation from thailand has gone up from previous years..

    have you tried heater for your tanks? but it's way too expensive for growing.. or indoor..

    Oh I'm happy with the growth of my fish. I'm aware that Thai fish are just much bigger and that the area you live in is better for their growth. I don't keep mine in tanks. I was just admiring your fish.

    thanks! the parent is broad tailed, maybe the male parent has that inggot and ryukin genes.. bought them small juveniles and weren't cheap lol.. got to respect breeders as they cull heavily, maybe 20-30 left out of a thousand..

    So are you TRYING to grow them quickly? Do they swim okay? They're definitely not shaped like standard Orandas. Their wens are small for their size and they are very deep bodied. Not found here at all. They don't even truly look like Ingot to me. As the OP said, they're broad tailed, not short tailed at all.

    yes trying to grow them fast then transfer to the community tank, not the best of result though as they don't have much space to swim, they practically grew in a bucket. low volume = less water to change.. they swim okay, can go up and down also lol.. can take food at the bottom or skimming for that protein at the surface.
