Ranchu Goldfish has no dorsal fin which makes it a poor swimmer.
However, it can be kept with any other fancy Goldfish variety as
it is a compatible fish, and unlike Celestials
and Bubble Eyes,
competes well with other fish where food is concerned.
It does not thrive well in temperatures below
55 degrees fahrenheit.
Ranchus come in several different color mixtures.
