Oranda?
« on: April 29, 2011, 09:37:38 PM »

I bought this guy from Petsmart around 6 months ago and he was tagged as an oranda
but compared to my other oranda, he doesn't really have much of a wen and his body shape is kind of different as well
I'm not sure whether it's because his wen hasn't developed yet or he's just a fantail.
i have pictures though!

thanks in advance  Smiley

It could be a pearlscale/ oranda hybrid.

hmm i don't know
he doesn't really have pearlscale features

It is probally an Oranda. I found a Picture of an Oranda that looked pretty similar. I'm not sure what type though. Hope that helps  Grin Cheesy Grin Cheesy Grin Cheesy

That's an oranda, you can see it on the headgrowth Smiley But of course, not all orandas have huge, perfect headgrowth Wink Especially not the ones from pet shops, since they're culls from show quality stock.
