Sale price$24.99


The Calico Oranda is a visually stunning and highly prized variety of fancy goldfish, celebrated for its vibrant and multicolored appearance. This variety features a distinctive "wen," or fleshy growth on the top of its head, which, combined with its colorful pattern, gives the Calico Oranda a unique and captivating presence in any aquarium.

Calico Orandas display a striking blend of colors, typically including shades of red, orange, yellow, black, and blue, all set against a white or metallic base. These colors form an intricate, mosaic-like pattern that covers their rounded, egg-shaped bodies and flowing, veil-like fins. As they mature, the contrast and vibrancy of their colors often become more pronounced, making them a true centerpiece in any aquatic setting. These goldfish can grow up to 8-12 inches in length, requiring ample space to thrive.

Caring for Calico Orandas involves maintaining high water quality and providing a suitable environment. They prefer well-filtered tanks with stable water conditions, ideally kept at temperatures between 65-72°F. Due to their delicate wen, which can be prone to bacterial infections, it's crucial to keep their habitat clean and monitor water parameters regularly. A balanced diet of high-quality flakes, pellets, and occasional fresh or frozen foods like brine shrimp or daphnia is essential for their health and to enhance their coloration.

Calico Orandas are known for their peaceful and social nature, making them compatible with other similarly tempered fish. They enjoy swimming in groups and benefit from a tank setup that includes hiding spots and open areas for exploration. Regular tank maintenance, including weekly water changes, helps prevent common issues such as poor water quality and associated health problems.

With proper care, Calico Orandas can live for many years, bringing a burst of color and elegance to any aquarium. Their combination of unique appearance and gentle temperament makes them a favorite among both novice and experienced aquarists.
