    Top/Side View Ranchus

    Hello, I just accidentally stumbled on to this forum from searching for ranchus. I didn't realized that there are member here interested in them. I also noticed the posts are pretty old and rightfully so, this being a koi forum. I just like to know if there other ranchu keepers in bayarea. If there are, let me know. Thanks.

    LOVE the Japanese top view ranchus!!! Don't think I can get them here in Canada. You may have a hard time to get good ones from the U.S. also. I hope I am wrong here!

    By the way, all Japanese ranchus are top view. Of course you can view them on the side. They all look good on the side too.

    I like the side view Thai Ranchus, nothing like watching some chunky goldfish swimming around in a tank.

    I will PM you Vincent if I find a good deal or locate some Ranchus here in the Bay Area.

    Well there are actually a variety of strands of ranchus. There are Japanese/Thai/Chinese SVRs, but the fish you want from Japan are their TVRs. Yes they are a very tough to come by in the US, and very expensive. The person that I get them from is Paul from ranchumaniax in PA, he imports them from Thailand. I was just hoping to find local breeders to purchase from.

    Here are some of my SVRs and TVRs like.

    Haha, yes I've already checked him out. I've bought some from Harris Zane out in Hawaii, he too breeds the Monden bloodline. The 3rd youtube link is his own breed.

    Thanks Vincent for the YouTube! I had the Chinese Ranchus years and years ago. Don’t think I want any of them after seeing the ones from Japan. They are so beautiful! Just like koi they have shows all over Japan. The best show is called All Japan exactly like koi........lol.
