I used to keep jap and thai ranchus, bacically they are different.

Thai have a fatter and rounder body, and in my personal opinion, they are best view from the side.

Jap are longer, side view does not look nice. and Top view is best. their body are longer, and the side of the body is straight, tails are spread out, swim straight. ...... and they have to be kept in tubs, 1 feet deep, and 2x3 feet at least. orelse your expensive fish may grow"out of shape"... of course if you ask the LFS, he will tell you everything is ok.. becos not everyone have space for tub...

there are some pics of my ex-jap ranchus in my gallery
