Oranda Types?

Recommended Posts

I apologize if this question sounds nubbish or if I missed a similar post else where but are there different types of oranda's like ranchu's?

I've noticed some are more deep bodied chub chubs while some are more slender and seem to(from what I've seen although these might just be young ones) have less wen.

Yeah, there are different kinds of orandas. Some have a longer body, shorter body, more wen, less wen... Although they generally get a deeper body and larger wen as they age, some stay slender with less wen for their whole life. Those are better for ponds because they can swim better and aren't so deformed. Usually, people prefer deeper bodied larger wenned ones for shows, but I'd rather have a more normal looking fish.

Don't show that picture to other Oranda's, they might get a complex lol!

This is the one I got recently.. kind of looks like a double tail common with a wen but I think he's adorable and am trying hard not to name him Spot. :aint:

Three types of wen: goosehead, tigerhead, and lionhead

generally a deeper egg shaped body is preferred for side view fish, but top view orandas like azumanisiki have the longer bodies, top view ranchu-like wen and amazing fins.

Then you have fin types (veiltail, ribbontail, butterfly, etc), and color/ marking types (panda, tancho, calico, etc).

Oh you got the Rudolph fish?! Cute!

I like the Thai orandas, because they have more deep, round bodies sort of like a ryukin and tight headgrowth. This kind:
