The more I look at his body shape (pointier head shape etc) I wonder. Especially compared to Talulah's round face and longer body, ole' Herman doesn't look as much like an oranda as I originally thought.

Is it just me?

You did really GREAT in 'grooming' him! Look at that fabulous belly! I think he might still be too 'young' for the wen to grow. Try feeding more protein like blood worms - I think those help with the head growth. :) Love him

Based on the slight hump on him, it seems to me that Herman is what we would call here in the Philippines an Orkin or Oranda-Ryukin cross. I just bought one myself last month and looks exactly like him except orange. It was during an aqua exhibit and they all looked the same and were labeled as 'rare Orkin' on the tank signage. They even showed me a picture of a full grown one and it seems that the wen will grow, but not just as big as the typical oranda wen. :)

Here is a link of 'Orkins' from China

I LOVE THE SHORT BODY BTW. My favorites.
