Sale over, will have new listings in the spring
Sorry, USA shipping addresses only 

 I am proud to offer these exceptional ranchu from this year's spawns!  These ranchu will require greatly heightened care and feeding to grow them to their best potential.  I recommend using the traditional Japanese method of 100% water changes to raise these ranchu.  Japanese ranchu are social creatures and thrive best in a group, please consider 3 as the smallest group that will give them the social interactions they need (5 is better).  Here is a link to see the parent ranchu:

Since 2012 I have shipped hundreds of ranchu.  I have a 100% success rate shipping ranchu to all USA locations. After they are released into your system their health is your responsibility.  Live arrival guarantee does not cover delays caused by the shipper.  If you live in Hawaii please make sure you have the proper paperwork as I will require copies to include in your box for Ag. dept. inspection (list species as Carassius auratus) .

LIVE ARRIVAL GUARANTEE: If one or more ranchu arrives dead, please follow these steps exactly: take a 30-60 second clear & up-close video, or a series of clear and up-close photos, of the ranchu still in the shipping bag and email them to me within 1 hour of delivery. Failure to do this will void the live arrival guarantee.  If the unthinkable should happen please follow the above steps and I will refund or replace the ranchu, including the cost of shipping.  I reserve the right to choose refund or replace at my discretion.  Live arrival guarantee does not cover delays caused by the shipper (weather, mechanical, etc).  After the ranchu are released into your system their health is your responsibility.  When you purchase ranchu from me it means you agree to all terms stated on this page.
