"I currently have three oranda gold fish in my 46 Gal Euro. I prefer a cold water set up, double filter, natural rock decor, and a bubble wall. My female is all gold, my breeding male is a panda(black and white), and my other male oranda is calico. I find that they are pretty easy to keep as far as fish are concerned. They have only had ich three times(which I'm proud to say all lived) and nothing else thus far. I keep large gravel in the bottom of the tank since they will pick up the smaller bits and get it caught in their throats. Most people recommend feeding their fish once a day but I was taught in the asian method of up to 4 times daily. I feed them Hikari Oranda Gold since it increases color and lionhead growth and eliminates the need to feed live or freeze dried foods. Orandas will come to the top of the water and pop at you to get you to feed them, but you'll have to ignore it or you will soon have an overfeeding problem. I keep a sword plant in my tank that they will not touch which is good since Goldfish eat almost anything. I have noticed though that you need to keep a good deal of Stress Enzyme or Stress Coat in the water since they are easily stressed and prone to ich."
