Taco has been seeming depressed lately. She’s not swimming much. She’s hanging out on the surface of the water and only stays on the side of the tank. The fish tank has also recently been turning greenish when it didn’t before. The filter works fine and we replace it regularly. Does anyone know what might be going on? :(
New Red cap oranda and moor are my joy and this Summer was a disaster as super heat conditions plus a cloud of material from our pine trees which shade our ponds created a special condition which produced in very rapid time ( few hours) a toxic milky white water . This killed many of my prized fishes. Now we restart with a very nice little group of red cap oranda , a few black moor and about fifty nice guppy from Israel and shir lanka. These of course are all inside acquariums. It is a few years since I visit shop and purchase new fish and I am impressed by the high quality of their health. So far only ick and of course the normal % deaths of guppy after travel. I hope that soon I will be able to provide more good news .
Hello! I'm excited to be part of this family. I mostly in need of help raising my goldfish babies since there's not a visible community of goldfish hobbyist in my area. My fish fam consist of 2 red cap oranda (Pula and Kami), 2 sakura ranchu (Chuchu and Lychee), 1 black oranda (Kujo), and 1 calico oranda (Strawberry). They live in a 75 gal tank. My main concern is that my red cap orandas love to swim on the surface of the water. They're not gasping for air, they just simply float on the top sort of playing god-like and watching the other fish swim below them. They only do this when I'm not watching them! So I've observed this for a month now and they still do it. Whenever they see me and when I come closer to the tank, they swim back down with the rest of the fish fam. I also don't think it's a swim bladder problem because they're not swimming upside down. They also perfectly swim fine when they join the others closer to the substrate. Is this a common behavior? if not, then why does this happen?
Hello! I'm new to this forum and I've have been wondering this for the longest. I have a Red Cap Oranda named Lil Red and I've had him for almost a year now (got him Oct. 3, 15') and he hasn't grown much at all. I did some research before I got him and bought a 30g tank and necessary equipment so it's not like he was kept in a tiny bowl. Around June I downsized his tank to a 20g. I feed him once a day sometimes more. I give him spinach at least 4 times a week. Would anyone might know why he hasn't grown? I want him to get big and chunky like orandas should be. Thanks for reading, Zach
