Sale price£15.95


The High Head Oranda, a stunning variety of fancy goldfish, adds a regal and majestic presence to freshwater aquariums with its distinctive high, bulbous head growth (also known as a wen) and graceful demeanour. This ornamental fish is renowned for its striking appearance, featuring a prominent head growth that can develop into impressive proportions over time. The High Head Oranda comes in various colours, including vibrant red, white, orange, or calico patterns, further enhancing its visual appeal.

Creating an ideal habitat for the High Head Oranda involves providing a spacious aquarium with smooth gravel or sand to prevent injury to its delicate wen. Ample aeration and filtration are essential for maintaining water quality, as fancy goldfish produce more waste than typical aquarium fish.

Maintaining suitable water conditions is crucial for the well-being of High Head Orandas. Keep the temperature between 65-75°F (18-24°C) and ensure a pH level between 6.5 to 7.5. Regular water changes are necessary to keep ammonia and nitrite levels low.

Feeding the High Head Oranda a varied diet of high-quality sinking pellets, flakes, and occasional treats like bloodworms or brine shrimp promotes optimal health and coloration. With proper care and attention to water quality, the High Head Oranda will thrive and become a stunning centrepiece in any freshwater aquarium.
