Lastly: it has sort of skin coming of its head.

    I would strongly advise against touching goldfish of any species as they are known in some rare cases to give humans tuberculosis. It can also be very dangerous for the fish, as your hands could carry harmful contaminants that could cause them to become very ill.

I have a red capped oranda fish and it's huge! About 8 inches long. However it's red cap never seems to have stopped growing, so now it is so large it covers his eyes and he can't see anymore. Is there anything I Can do for it?

Hi there...can someone help please? I'm a bit concerned with my younger gold cap - The body I have noticed is starting to have a red tint appearance and it appears to be wider than it that its actually a she and carrying eggs? Or something serious? I'd appreciate the help!

Hi, I'm new to fancy goldfish, I always had tropical and decided I wanted to try golds, I have two orandas and one ryukun[?] I need all the info I can get, I've read so much now I'm afraid my fish will get sick from something, they are in big aquarium, now I know not to feed them flake food dry, should I put a little aquarium salt in their tank to prevent disease, I did in my tropical tank but did not know about goldfish, need to know. THANKS EVERY ONE.

My redcap fish is very sweet, it is not at all like other fishes. They can grow large in size. It is more senstive than other fishes. It is very rare in my town, that's why I love red cap fishes.

My red cap is sweeter than all of other red caps. Plese pardon me, I just love it from when I kept it in my small jar. If you want this loving feeling, go to market and get your favourite one... and it must be a RED CAP.
