I want to get another oranda and I can't find a place that has a selection. All I can find is white with a red wen and I want a really special one. My Ladyfish is all white and I want a calico or one that's as special as her. I want to go to where the store gets them so I can see alot. I'm in Los angeles it shouldn't be this hard to find a selection of orandas. Anybody have advice about getting to a supplier. I can't do shipping ,I stress out waiting for crickets from ups. Even search advice would be helpful. No offence to white and red orandas. Thx in advance

Calico Orandas don't usually last long at stores, so you just have to keep checking, as Angie said. Your Lady looks a lot like my new Oranda Citrine. Lemon head Orandas. Pretty common themselves. You could always go for a nice orange one. I'm near Atlanta and there are no LFS here at all that sell goldfish. I have to dig super hard looking for breeders here as I don't do the shipped fish thing either and I find it too pricey anyway. I found my little mush at a fish show.

Ebay has them from a California supplier.  

 

If you're not set on that color, Coast Gem in SoCal  has a super good deal on 3 -3.5 inch Red/ orange and white Orandas.   They're $10 dollars apiece and next day shipping in California is just  $30 bucks.

 

I just ordered two for my  75 gallon tank.  Yup, I dragged it out from storage and set it up. Yes, I'm crazy!
