Why is this thread not more active?  Previous posters should give update photos of their orandas!

 

 

Just got first goldies a few weeks ago, husband picked out...and named this one Chocolate (for the bronze hued coloration).  I think its a female but not sure, hubby wants it to be a boy ^^

My Oranda is still too tiny and looks just like a regular goldfish. Maybe once he grows a bit he will qualify. Lol he has NO WEN at all.

Need to get some decent in focus shots of my 2 new ones, for now here's a bagged shot when they first got home and saw all the ripariums/aquaponic tank.

Randy the Oranda today

I guess he's a regular Oranda. I've seen Orandas much smaller than him with at least SOME wen.

I love that Randy has no wen, he fits in with the crew better. I just wasn't totally sure he was an Oranda! I think he is, though. Your bronze guy is cute. I think I see a WEE bit of wen.

I think I can see a wee bit too. Sooo... Is a goldfish a fantail if it is a wen less oranda?

Idk - but Randy has NO WEN so I wasn't sure he was an Oranda. His face and stuff looks Oranda, just no wen.

For what its worth my orandas mouths are angles slightly different (more up turned-makes face look a bit more flat) from my fantail (but more down turned, mouth gives a little bit more point to the face from side profile) but she may be a fantail x ryukin mix.  I've not closely examined other fantails close up to know if she's an anomaly/defect or if that's common form.

I really wonder about the entire thing. Idk how big Randy may get, he's currently 12-13 grams, but let's say he gets 60 grams. If he STILL has no wen, does he count as an Oranda? Idk anything about Orandas! In his first photo, I thought I may have seen a ghost wen, but now there's just a smooth head.

Lol, everything growing but wen. Also, Randy has a small outtie showing, so I think she's female.

Beautiful fish guys!

yeah, I thought there must be some other indicators or traits that make an oranda but IDK what they are, kind of cool and worth doing a little more research on my part :thumbup2:

BTW MJ you have lovely long nails!

Randy is definitely mixed with something. She's growing LONGER rather than more compact and there's no wen at all. Thanks Speckles. Before I started keeping fish, my nails were even longer. The water multiple times a week with scrubbing glass and washing media and just checking fish and stuff, they get soft and some break. I'm scared to out the waterproof stuff on them for fear of hurting the fish.

And I'm SO hoping to find one I like at the show, too. I mainly collect the forgotten fish from mass merchandiser tanks, so it's easy to have too many. Poor little mites.
