Oranda

This is probably one of the most popular varieties of Fancy Goldfish kept in the UK now. It appeals to many fish keepers as they are particularly popular because of the great characteristics associated with this variety especially as the fish mature. The incredible Cauliflower looking head and cheeks, and further attractive facial features often draws people in to stocking this variety in their aquarium. 

Very friendly and with so many colours available Red Oranda, Red & White Oranda, Red & Black Oranda, Calico Oranda , Chocolate Oranda, Metallic Blue Oranda, Black Oranda and the more unusual Black & White Panda Oranda, Tri Colour Oranda and Redhead Calico Oranda varieties.  

We can offer for sale Oranda’s ranging in size from 1-2 inch up to Jumbo.  We have in the last year or so handled prize specimens that were 10-12inches in length and weighed over one kilo in weight. Don’t worry though they will not achieve that size in most people’s Aquariums, these fish were grown in massive ponds in China which is why they were able to achieve this size.

An example of just how an Oranda can grow is ROCKY.   Rocky weighs 2lbs 10ozs – more than a bag of sugar. Star Fisheries imported and sold this fish in early 2017.

If you want to achieve the best potential from your Fancy Goldfish generally a 20-25% weekly water change will help the fish flourish.

This does not mean however if you don’t do this the fish will not do very well.  It just means that any hormones given off by the fish are removed by the water changes and these hormones generally affect how the fish grow and behave. Filters generally do not have any impact on the hormones so these would remain within the water if water changes are not implemented, so the environment becomes more static. The upshot of this is that fish generally would grow slower and would be less sexually stimulated so breeding the fish, if this is desired, becomes a little more challenging.
