    Hi everyone,
    Just wanted to share this incase anyone is looking for good quality fancys around the greater Toronto area.
    Lately the Big Al's in Vaughn has been importing fancys from Thailand. They are getting just about every type in good sizes(1.5-5") and quality, healthy fish. The manager there is very knowledgeable and friendly i just picked up this Ranchu for 24.99!!! IMG_1877.JPG [​IMG][​IMG]
    What do you think?

    Beautiful Ranchu, lucky you. My local Al's certainly hasn't brought any in that nice.

    He's a TVR. His wen isn't really supposed to he big. Also he's very small. It will grow as he grows.

    Is his tail fused together? He's super cute either way.

    Also, they have not been getting good fish at this store anymore. If anyone is looking for real good quality fish (way better than this ranchu) in the Greater Toronto area, PROAQUATIC in Scarborough is amazing. Strictly high quality koi and goldfish all quarantined for a minimum of 2weeks. The owner Cary is a very experienced fishkeeper with amazing husbandry

    My bad. I always mix them up. I love this fish. I would want one like it but no success with Ranchu.
