Oranda turns black

8 posts in this topic

Hello,

This Oranda that I bought about 5 weeks ago is perfectly healthy , has spawned eggs last week with my even newer new big male orange Oranda that was just released in the big tank after quaratine, is very active and eats a lot .

I know that they can turn color but there is about two weeks between these two pictures , it looks like just the red is turning black as I hope she will keep her light pinkish head color .

This is normal , right ?

In that same time my other Oranda is rapidly losing it's last black colour I just discovered , I didn't notice this before .

Maybe they are trading !
