    New Ryukin baby

    All white color. Still very young. I have named it Secret. Cost me $15. I LOVE Ryukins so couldn't pass up.

    Thanks everyone. Ryukins are my absolute favorites of all time.

    I couldn't resist this little baby at Walmart. I'm pretty sure he's a Ryukin, too. Cost $2 bless him. I named him Crystal since he's a clear based color. These teensy ones don't always make it so wish me luck with him please. Walmart doesn't do a good job with their fish at all.

    I like Ryukins but they always seem to develop swim bladder issues for me, what am I doing wrong?

    I've only been keeping fish for a year and a half but I've not encountered any swim bladder issues in any ryukins.

    High causes of swim bladder disorder are

    #1 Wrong diet
    #2 Excess feeding
    #3 High nitrates
    #4 Deep tanks with poor surface area
    #5 Poor genetics
