Red Cap Oranda

Where to buy

Sold out at all stores.
Red cap orandas are adorably egg-shaped and an attractive species of oranda goldfish.

Their bodies consist completely of shimmering white scales, with the exception of a bright red cap on their heads known as the 'wen'.

Here is some information about this interesting red cap goldfish!

Personality traits
Red cap orandas are social and peaceful fishes that enjoy being in a community. They are also great scavengers which help to maintain the cleanliness of the tank by eating leftover food.

As red cap orandas are slow swimmers, they should not be housed with other fast-swimming fish like Neon Tetras as they are unable to compete for food. Ideal tank mates will include similar-sized, peaceful fish such as Ryukins.

It is important to properly care for these fishes as they have a low tolerance for pollution and their hood can be easily infected by bacteria and fungi. Thus, they will benefit from weekly water changes or a good filtration system.
