Ranchu, a dorsal-less fin has round head and body structure. Aside from well displaying the elegant of the royalty (generally, distinguished as the king of gold fish), it also maintains the classical beauty of a traditional gold fish. It has a board backbone that stretches downward at the end. This enhances the stunning attraction of the fish.
