Red Cap Oranda Goldfish

The red cap oranda is a famous and popular color variation of the oranda, and when first introduced to the West won many show prizes in the late 1800s.

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 body of the red cap oranda is bright white and the wen is bright red.

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