about to buy some orandas
« on: April 16, 2011, 07:54:44 PM »

so i decided that i really want to get some orandas, i got a 20g tank and plan on getting 2-3 of them and a bottom feeder of some kind (more then likely a plocastamus). sadly in my area the quality fish stores seem to be dropping like flies, had 3 major ones close in the past year. so i guess basically I'm coming here to see if anyone knew about some quality fish shops in the st. louis, mo area. i don't mind driving too far. the big thing i'm looking for is panda orandas. the petco by me can order them but if i don't like the pattern I'm still stuck with them, not really a bad thing but just like everyone else i like to look at the fish then pick out what ones i want.

 Attached a pic of the tank. so happy to finally be getting some fish back in my life.

You can only fit 2 orandas in there a pleco needs 50 gallons each.

Its 20g for the first fish and 10g after that.  I would only put 1 in there.  Orandas get quite large as far as a fancy goldfish goes.   You can check out online places but the shipping is pretty high.  Raingarden and goldfishconnection are 2 great places to order fish and you can see the pic before you buy.  Goldfishconnection is an auction type place though, usually auction starts every other Sunday.  Steve at Raingarden has some pretty panda orandas in now but just so you know the color is usually not stable and will change on most panda's.  Good luck and take care!

TWO ORANDAS ARE PERFECT there. But nothing else. Goldfish kind of clean the bottom themselves Wink But know this, no fish, no matter if it's a pleco or not would eat sludge and waste. So you still need to clean the gravel well during the weekly waterchanges Smiley

Bel: 20gallon for one fish means the measurements of the tank! Not the volume. 10 gallons is just enough for one goldfish, but a ten gallon tank would be too small for the fish to live comfortably.
