Carassius auratus Oranda Panda

3. July 2017

If one listens to the breeders the black and white goldfish are called „magpie goldfish“, animals with telescope eyes ae called „demekin“ and the fish with a double, but compartively small tailfin are „fantails“. An oranda, on the other hand, is a hooded fish in the language of the breeders. But honestly: who would call this nice pandas we obtained recently „magpy demekin with fantail“? Oranda panda sounds much better, doesn´t it?


This sports isn´t easy to breed. We have only one supplier on a regular basis and even he cannot satisfy all needs anytime. Each individual fish looks a bit different. There are even specimens in which the white part of the coloration is missing. In that case the fish look similar to the Black Moor (a black demekin variety), but nevertheless different. 

For our customers: the fish have code 817499 (3-4 cm) and 817500 (4-5 cm) on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Available in limited numbers only.
