I purchased two baby oranda fish and would like to put them with my oranda female that is all alone. The new guys are only 1 inch. My older Oranda is the size of my hand! She's huge! I don't think she sees real well and I am afraid to put the new guys in with her because I'm afraid she will think they are lunch.
How big should they be before they can all live together peacefully or would they be fine together now?
I've seen my oranda eat a whole pea, skin and all which i accidentally dropped in there before i could shed the skin.
I've also seen her eat a big piece of orange in one gulp!
I'm so undecided what to do. I should have waited maybe but the only shop that sells bigger orandas is 1 1/2 hours away from me and sometimes they don't even have any. It's very hard for me to find fancy goldfish where I live.
