The ranchu are starting to demonstrate their personalities and swimming styles. Observe, observe, learn and observe!
|Some of the best BBR from the April spawn|
The BBR pictured above might appear not straight or symmetrical. It is only because they are constantly in motion and it is hard to photograph and freeze their body in exactly straight line. All the ranchu I am left with are with straight and symmetrical bodies and tails. All three tail types are present: yotsuo, sakurao and mitsuo (see my earlier post "Variations, Inclinations and Acceptance"). Also, all of the BBR have double anal fins, which is very important for becoming good swimmers.
