HIGHRANCHU TIMELINE - ONE FISH'S JOURNEY - PART I

It was hard for me to find photos of ranchu development timeline to see how a particular ranchu changes over time. So, I have decided to periodically photograph four of my fish, which hatched on April 14, 2014.

It is a great way to study and see the grooming faults and successes through the years. It is also a way to observe aging tendencies in a particular bloodline if you are concerned with how your ranchu will look in late OYA age.

So here is the female fish study from CBR to current OYA, since 2014.

COMMENTS

For me, this is a remarkable OYA fish of 6 in (15.25 cm) long. The body didn't change much and retained its elongated shape and good outline. The tail has no visible changes and maintains a good outline and placement. The head, on the other hand, is changing. Its become wider, but kept its overall shape without an overgrown wen. Also, the coloration and pattern are stable, with very minimal changes.
