    It has been very busy but exciting past two years. The BEPs are sure one of my favorites of all times. It is quite interesting to see their development in the past two years and watching their tails becoming long and graceful as what the original BEP line is known for. The best part is that there has not been a single case of fading of the blue so far.

    I love blue fish. Doesn't matter the variety. The silver looking scales are just so pretty to me. I want a blue Ryukin. They can't truly be found in true blue. Makes me sad....

    These are beautiful. I'd love to have a breeding trio of these.

    Happy fishkeeping, Jim.

    I had a trio of blue ryukins that I unfortunately lost this summer. Blue ryukins are still on my list of breeding projects, I'm just gonna need new seed ryukin.

    I had one from wally-world that had a deformed mouth, fused tail, and ended up plagued with rare tumors. She also had a poor hump and shape but she was definitely a Ryukin. Blue/olive...

    After removing a HUGE tumor from her head twice... I lost her to hexamita HITHD a few months later. She had ugly olive patches but she was otherwise blue. She was my favorite. I wish I could find another. She grew to be quite big in a short amount of time. She was a tiny fantail looking thing when I got her.

    She had ugly scars from where the tumor was so I called her Boo Boo. Her name was originally Slate though. I still miss her a ton. Please let me know if you're ever able to get any. I would LOVE one.

    Ryukin and Blue Egg Phoenix is different type of fish. Please stay focus on the original topic in future.

    Oh yikes. Really sorry. We were just talking about blue fish. All right. Take it easy. My apologies. Remove the comments if you like. Didn't mean to go off topic.
