The Oranda is one of the more popular fancy Goldfish, large specimens are very impressive with their large head growth or "hood". The size of the head growth increases with age: 4-6cm fish show barely any sign of a hood whereas in some adults the large hood is even starts to cover the fish's eyes! Can be kept either indoors or outdoors in a garden pond (but provide protection from predators if kept outdoors.)
