Sale price$23.99


The Red and White Ranchu Goldfish, often revered as the "king of goldfish," is a captivating variety prized for its distinct appearance and graceful swimming demeanor. Originating from Asia, particularly Japan and China, this stunning breed has been selectively bred over centuries to achieve its unique features and vibrant colors.

Characterized by its iconic humpbacked body and lack of a dorsal fin, the Ranchu Goldfish exhibits a streamlined profile with a rounded, egg-shaped abdomen. This distinct body shape, reminiscent of a sumo wrestler's physique, is accentuated by its vibrant red and white coloration, which often resembles the colors of the Japanese flag.

The Red and White Ranchu's scales shimmer in hues ranging from pure white to deep crimson, creating a striking contrast that commands attention in any aquarium setting. Its elegant fins, including the gracefully flowing tail and pectoral fins, add to its regal appearance, giving it an almost majestic presence as it gracefully glides through the water.

Keeping the Red and White Ranchu Goldfish requires diligent care and attention to ensure its health and well-being. These fish thrive in spacious aquariums with ample swimming room and smooth substrate to prevent injury to their delicate fins. Additionally, they prefer well-oxygenated water with temperatures ranging from 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C) and a pH level between 6.5 and 7.5.

Feeding the Red and White Ranchu Goldfish a balanced diet consisting of high-quality pellets, flakes, and occasional treats like bloodworms or brine shrimp is essential for maintaining their vibrant colors and overall health. Regular water changes and diligent filtration are also necessary to keep their environment clean and free of harmful toxins.
