Long Finned Oranda?

Recommended Posts

Kind hearted me rescued a orange oranda from a lfs 3 months ago. He is a interesting fella in that his left eye is crossed and he swims like his radar is off. He is healthy and eats well so I have no concerns except I wonder why his fins are so long? His body is @ 2 inches long with his tail fins twice the length of his body. Is this a sub species of orandas? His pec fins are exceptional long and seems to be the catalyst in all his movements.

Here's a couple of photos:

Adorable fish and a lucky fish to have found you. He might be stunted that might be why his wen is as big as it is and his fins so long. If he has large eye (pupils) then he is stunted. Agsin he is so ADORABLE!

Thanks! He is a cutie. I named him Finnegan from, "Finnegan Begin Again".

Never even crossed my mind to think him as stunted but that would explain his big eyes, wen, long fins and tiny body.

Just another reason to love him more. :heart
