issue, we showcase yet another good example of our "green algae water"
back in July, we put up in our
sales catalog 3 rare Japanese Jikins (Peacock Tail) for sale. These 3 fishes
have excellent composure and fins but were very poor in
coloration. As such, our grading
for the fish were A4A for the first 2 fishes and A5A for the
According to the owner, these
fishes were once very vivid in color, their coloration have
deteriorated after months of keeping indoors. While awaiting the
new owner, we took good care of these fishes and housed them in one of our outdoor
In the stock taking last month, we were very pleased
with the expected improvement in their coloration (see
photographs for comparison).
This is another good example of
goldfish keeping outdoors with green algae water. In less
than 3 months, they have grown healthier and regained
much of their lost color.
It is only fair that we reassess
their grading and upgrade them to
A2A and A3A respectively. The price of
these fishes have also appreciated as they are now bigger and more
beautiful. In case you are wondering where is JKN-001-A4A - it
has been sold before we got a chance to take its picture
again. One word of advice to any serious buyer - grab them
before they appreciate in price again! Who knows, the owner
may even change his mind about selling them.
