This article is the update on my panda ryukin breeding project. The fishes here are the F2.
The first fish has the best shape resembling ryukin. The second one is a bit elongated and has smaller hump. The rest of the batch have almost no hump. So, in term of the body shape, there is a need to cross once again with a good and decent ryukin. But this cross will sacrifice the color. So, to finish this project, I need two more breeding step: to enhance the body shape, and then to enhance the color.
The fish might be ready to spawn in perhaps two months later. I am glad for the progress so far.
Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year.
