Red Caps Gone?


Recommended Posts

I was looking for a red cap oranda the other day and after looking at all *counts on fingers* 5 of my local fish shops couldn't find any. I asked a guy and he said they were really hard to get hold of all of a sudden. I remember seeing them all over the place! Has anyone else in the UK noticed this, or is it just in my area?

Now that you mention it, they don't seem as common here as they used to be. I wouldn't call them rare, but I remember years ago that was almost the only kind of oranda you could find.

I agree, Chrissy. Red caps were practically the only variety of oranda I used to see 10+ years ago. Now it's not unusual to see more of the other colors available instead.

I was in my LFS the other day, a Maidenhead Aquatics, and they had a couple of tanks with Red Caps in, up until then I hadnt seen many around lately.
