Male Moor and Female Oranda ???
« on: September 14, 2010, 11:47:25 PM »

Could someone please tell me what the offspring of one 4yr old black moor turned orange and one 3yr old female oranda with serious locks is called?

Well, it's like this when you breed a moor (or even two moors):
The offspring usually turn red or any other colors that are within the genes of the fish, even if the parents are velvet black. It's also possible for the eyes to look different on the fry, for example some would be telescope fish while some would have only one eye protruding or completely normal eyes! Being much like fantails or butterfly tails.

And what about the oranda? I didn't understand the question :'c

Either way, your fish are incredibly beautiful Smiley They look so big and healthy! How big's the tank? Do you have more fish? Smiley

I'm simply trying to find out what the off spring of my male moor and female oranda is called. It's the black one in the photos I uploaded. And of course the moor and oranda are the parents.

Nossie, to answer your questions the three goldfish share a 55 gal with a redfin rainbow shark(also known as a common minnow). I also have a 30 gal with a plecostamis, gouramis, black fin tetras, a barb, and several otocincluses. The gouramis have offspring themselves at the moment, two fry survived and more eggs are germinating. Then there's the ten gallon that's supposed to be a hospital tank but is currently housing three neons a couple platys, and two more otocincluses.

I won't mention the snakes or cats here, oops. LOL

Thanx for the compliments. Smiley

Oooo your moor and oranda had a baby together?? That's so cool and interesting Smiley You could create a new fish as I don't think it has an official name, but I'm not sure. It sort of looks like a fan tail I reckon.

Deofel: In that case I wouldn't know actually d: There are special telescope orandas of course. Have you heard of them? They're simply orandas with telecope eyes, the Chinese were developing them (They're not that cute actually). So maybe this can be called a telescope oranda? Or simply "oranda-telescope" hybrid d: It generally looks much like a ryukin, but it's not genetically possible, I think to make a ryukin out of these varieties.

What an awesome collection of fish you've got! Smiley

Hanna they curl up together all the time, I swear it's like they've bonded in some fish sort of way. Probably spend about 80% of their time like that.

Your fish offspring of your Oranda and Orange Moor is a black very handsome Fantail.
I wonder if he will stay black or turn orange like his father in a few years?  Then he will be a big handsome orange fantail! Smiley
I LOVE your fish!  They are all gorgeous!
