Red Ranchu


The Red Ranchu boasts a vibrant, crimson hue that instantly captivates the eye. This breed is revered in the realm of ornamental fish for its unique lion-like appearance and stately swimming demeanor. Its round body and absence of a dorsal fin are distinctive traits that contribute to its popularity among both novice and experienced fish enthusiasts.


  • Elegant, curved body shape without a dorsal fin
  • Rich, saturated red coloring that adds a pop of color to any tank
  • Gentle and sociable, thriving in calm aquatic environments
  • Relatively easy to care for, making them suitable for a wide range of hobbyists

Care Tips:

Red Ranchu goldfish require clean, well-oxygenated water and a spacious tank to accommodate their rounded bodies. They are prone to buoyancy issues, so a diet of high-quality, varied foods with regular feeding times is important. Sinking pellets are often recommended to avoid air intake during feeding, which can exacerbate these issues.


  • Scientific Name: Carassius auratus var. Ranchu
  • Preferred Temperature: 16-24°C (60-75°F)
  • pH: 6.0-8.0
  • Size: Up to 8 inches (20 cm)
  • Diet: Omnivorous
  • Minimum Tank Size: 30 gallons for a pair
  • Temperament: Peaceful and social

Special Note:

Given their distinct body shape, Red Ranchu are not adept swimmers and do best in tanks without strong currents. Their environment should be furnished with smooth-edged decorations to prevent injuries, and care should be taken to maintain excellent water conditions to prevent common goldfish ailments.
