Orandas are easily recognized by their cap (a series of outgrowths on their head). The cap is a distinctive feature of this species and is also known as the ‘wen’. This usually doesn’t fully develop until they are around 2 years old.
This species of fancy Goldfish has a huge variety in color: black, red, black with white dots, blue, black with grey gradient, red with orange-yellowish spots, white and many others.
Outgrowths cover its entire head, except for the eyes and the mouth. The size and the ‘richness’ of the cap depends on their living conditions. Their eyes are large and usually slightly protrude above the cap.
