Blue Oranda Goldfish

The blue oranda is an unusual and very pretty color variation of the oranda goldfish. The blue extend to the "wen" and the body is usually a blue and black or a little orange. In goldfish, the color blue is not a solid cobalt blue like cichlids, unfortunately, but closer to black with a light blue hue, much like the blue color marking in koi pond fish.

The word "Oranda" is Dutch for Lionhead, but unlike the Lionhead goldfish the Oranda has a prominent dorsal fin. Like the lionhead goldfish, oranda goldfish were selective bred to create the bubbly head the Chinese call the "wen" and we usually call the "crown" or "cap". The wen of the blue oranda is blue. 

Note: Our stock of Orandas are young and do not have the developed wen seen in the images. The wen develops when they mature.
