2019 babies are now available for sale! Every year for the past 5 years I've offered promotional ranchu baby starter sets from spring to fall season. If you've missed out on these sets - now's your chance to get a 2019 Goldfish Baby Starter Set. There are 3 batches. Batch 1, 2 and 3 have now sold out. Batch 4 is now available. It will be a while before I breed and sell baby starter sets again so don't miss out! Sets will include 10 Standard to Hobby Grade Chinese Calico ranchus. This set is ideal for experienced goldfishkeepers interested in learning to groom and raise a different goldfish type: RANCHU. 

1. What breed are these ranchus?
These are Chinese Calico Ranchus

2. What colors will I receive?
These are uncolored juveniles and some will be in midcolor change. Colors will come in and intensify AS THE RANCHU GROWS. I CAN'T predict their coloration or WHEN exactly the colors will start coming in. It will depend on genetics, your grooming skills, and the environment that you provide. I have 1 year old ranchus that are still changing color.

3. Can I choose the ranchus individually?
You will receive a "STARTER" set that will be preselected for you. You'll receive good specimens that swims well, I won't send out unhealthy fish. 

Sorry but I can't spend time scouring through hundreds of babies individually checking for specific traits; fused or split tails; double or single anal fins; eye distance; or even peduncle shortness or thickness. These are Standard Grade to Hobby Grade quality, not for competition.

4. Can you take videos of the ranchus before they ship?
No videos. Rest assured you will receive healthy ranchus that have already been given antibacterial and anti-parasitic preventive treatment.
