Red Cap Oranda Fancy Goldfish

The Red Cap Oranda Fancy Goldfish is a great companion to other Fancy Goldfish. They have a distinctive look because of their large red cap (wen), shimmering white scales and split tale. They are social animals so best kept in groups in a large coldwater aquarium.

Ease of care
Easy. We recommend having at least 35 litres of water per Goldfish. A lot of waste is produced so an adequate filter and pump are needed. They do eat plants so you can use plastic plants instead, for decoration. They must never be kept in unfiltered tanks.
Diet
Flake & sinking pellets are best. High Protein fish food when they are breeding. Sinking Pellets are best to help prevent swim bladder issues.
Compatibility
Community with other peaceful Fancy Goldfish and bottom feeders such as a Borneo Loach in cold water tanks. They will eat most live plants.
Breeding/ Sex
Moderate. They are egg layers and breed best when in groups as they are very social.
Lifespan
They can live up to 10-15 Years in perfect conditions.
