THE TWENTIETH DAY OF RANCHU FRY
It is exciting to watch the ranchu fry grow. Almost every day, I notice changes in their look. At this time I feed them heavily with newly hatched brine shrimp as well as a mixture of ground pellet variety (Japan Ranchu Lord, Saki-Hikari Purple and Omega One Super Color Kelp) and Wolffia. The time between now and when they start changing color is EXTREMELY important. Their skull, skeleton and tail are forming now to become the foundation of a beautiful ranchu. If you miss this time, you miss the ranchu.
