Fluffy's is quite small :X



It's barely noticeable when I nab pictures of him.

Oh wow! That is a small wen. But he's still a gorgeous little guy! How old is he? His wen could still be growing?

One of the reasons people like the wens is they give ranchu and oranda that adorable puppy dog look!

Truthfully, I'm not too sure. My husband got him as a gift for me back in July (I think) to keep the comet company.

Orandas are always so adorable but the oversized wen can be a bit of a turnoff as well as a health hazard, I've heard. o_o Read some things about how if the water quality is poor enough the wen folds can get infected. So I'm extra careful with keeping quality up especially since the tank is a bit over stocked

Haha! Yours do have the most wen growth, Olimpia. I can see a bit on my redcap, but I kinda don't want a huge wen so I'm find with it.

Kithy, he's still pretty young. Wens can take like 3-4 years to fully develop. I'm sure his will come in just fine. :)

Maybe in a few years we can look at having some babies :3 I'd love this little guy either way. He's such a camera ham. And he waddles which just makes me giggle so much, it's absolutely adorable!

Most goldfish breeders do wait a few years before spawning their fish. It gives the fish a chance to stabilize colors and for wen growth to develop (or not develop in some cases!)

Anyway, since we've been talking a lot about oranda, I though I'd share this article with you guys: Largest Panda Oranda ever imported into UK | News | Practical Fishkeeping

does anyone here have tosakins? i know they're a fairly obscure breed, but i'm mildly fascinated by them. i know they're considered a "top-viewing" breed, but would the impressive effect of their finnage be TOTALLY lost by keeping them in a horizontal tank rather than a grounded pond?

You could find some from a breeder in the states. That one article said their tails don't develop properly unless they are in round containers, but who knows...
