Making the head ~ 頭を作る

The Heart Is Forever Making the Head Its Fool.
~ François de la Rochefoucauld 

The BBRs are growing fast and their colour change is imminent. This is a  very crucial stage to start "making the head" of the BBR as the foundation of good funtan growth lies before their colour change. The green carpet algae and bloodworms are essential for making nice Ranchu head.

This year, I am also experimenting with wolffia columbiana (common water meal) which is used by some Japanese breeders. Wolffia from other pond sources should be sterilized before feeding to the BBRs. It should be safer to culture them with plant fertilisers.

My dream of creating a new variety of goldfish in 2006 has proven to be more than just an impulsive fantasy.
