Bel specically that is titled as a chinese SVR (side view ranchu) . The chinese ones are chubbier and shorter bodied then traditional SRV and a lot different than a TRV (top view ranchu). You have to be very careful with this body type they tend to have issues with headstanding evetually as I have learned recently I am still getting him but think I might try to get a bit longer bodies from now on because have learned it is very high chance of swim bladder issues. Oh also have been informed by a officail goldfish judge that this is actually more of a lionchu because his tail so high on body and the way his back is not as rounded of curve. Once you decide to get one PM me I can help you find one. would love to help you find one you like online.  Already got mindemae addicted to it lol (hehe tattling on you again minde).

Thanks all for compliments I get him this wednesday so once hes acclimated I will get video.

Minde: Yeah I guess so. Cheesy Down here in my county we don't allow goldfish in baitshops but I think the big chain stores sell them for bait. Sad

Its such a doll baby. and so sweet and fun. Got him last wednesday and now he finally starting to swim around alot more. Only issues are he is still tilting forward alot when resting that should hopefully straiten out soon. Also his colors are more muted not red but orange but i figured that since he was listed as a sakura and ones i have seen are ussually orange and white with occasional metallic scales. He is still a cutie. I will try to get video within next few days.

Aww, I'm so glad he got there safe and sound.  Smiley
Ty for the info about them.  I will surely have to ask you and the others about any new fish when we get to that point.  I know you are suppose to look at certain features to make sure they are hardy and healthy looking but I'm not that far into my reading quite yet.   So many different shapes for the varies types of fancies. 

Hope everything goes well with the new baby!  He does make you just want to grab those fat cheeks!  Grin
