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.

I have a red-cap oranda named Stella and she lives in a simple spot: a bowl with jewels and water! I clean her bowl about twice a week because she does not have an air stone and needs fresh oxygen. She is beautiful and seems quite happy and extremely easy to look after. I love GOLDFISH!

I have one Red Cap Oranda, I believe she is a girl, but won't know until she gets a little bigger and doesn't develop those nodules. She lives with 3 other fancy fish, which two of them bred and I now have 10 more in another tank. My Red Cap which I call Bobble or Bauble, she has some fuzz in her wen at the moment, which I just dabbed with blue. I've also added salt to the water. I have had her for a year and at one point she did flip over and lay upside down on the bottom of the tank. I fixed that problem by feeding her two peas (Thawed and de-shelled) a day for 5 days and then every second day from there. She got that problem because she got constipated and her swim bladder got pushed out of shape, therefore losing balance. She now only gets two or three meals a day (Small amounts - all food soaked in their water first) and a pea at lunch time every second day. Although every time she sees me she gets excited and I could feed her more, I just have to remember that I want her around for 20 years, so by not over feeding I am loving her better. She also loves to go to the top of the tank and just gulp at the water surface, looking for food, I also fixed that problem by soaking her food and not putting anything on the surface anymore. She has plenty of air, as it is a big filtered tank and she has an airator. She is definitely the light of the party in my tank other than my Lionhead called Puff.

I have 1 Red Cap Oranda that I got 5 days ago. His name is also lucky. He is so beautiful and full of life. He also got a fish friend the Siamese fighter named Sushi with the most beautiful blue, purple colors. I love my fish, they're great!

Ms Julia Burch this is Yagnesh Vaze from India. I am the proud owner of all the tera varieties. I have around 26 fishes and a Flowerhorn Fish. The best thing you can do about an oranda is add terramycin-250 capsule in ur tank and add some salt and change half the water continuously for 2 days.

I have 1 Red cap Oranda, it's very cute and good. His name is Lucky. Lucky has a partner and his partner's name is Goldy, and Goldy is a Red and White Fantail. I love watching them playing and having fun. I feel very proud of myself because of my two fishes.

I have been the proud owner of Ronnie for 8yrs. His beautiful long flowing tail looked mystical, and as he got older he went completly white, which made him look even more beautiful. But this morning he wasn't himself I put him in a smaller tank but sadly my Ronnie died at 6pm (GMT). So sad.
