I've had a red capped oranda for almost 8 months now. Her name is Livingston and she is gorgeous. I think she's about to lay eggs again because she's getting fatter every day. I personally have found her really easy to take care of - I'm currently in University and travel back and forth quite often and she always handles the trips quite well. I'd love to get more, but I'll need to get a bigger tank first!

We have just purchased two beautiful red cap oranda and named them Jensen and Jason. We are a little nervous about looking after them properly as we are newcomers to keeping fish. However we are keeping our fingers crossed that they survive and grow into strapping lads.

I bought a Redcapped Oranda about a month ago and meticulously cleaned his tank and properly adjusted him to the new water temperature, but one morning I awoke to find my poor fish dead. He was absolutely beautiful and I was heartbroken to not be able to watch him grow.

I just got a red-capped oranda today and I already love it. The last fish I had was a Betta.

I have a 30 gallon tank and and have had red capped orandas for almost a year now. Right now, I have 4 that are the size of a tennis ball and they are just delightful to watch. Those who share this fish hobby must get a red capped oranda to experience the serenity of the breed.

I picked up two red cap orandas. I am so excited to see the new arrival in my hexangonal tank in the living room. They are smooth and gracious fish. We sat for hours observing the newcomers.

i have two redcap orandas in a 40 gallon tank. I handfeed them with a mixture of live bloodworms, mashed peas, flakes, and tubiflex worms. they are so alert and lively, i love them to bits. one of my redcaps is 4 months old and the other is 9 months old with a well developed hood that most redcaps take 2 years to achieve. if you feed your fish an excellent varied diet that include lots of live food, then your fish will blossom and grow into magical creatures.

I just got 3 saturday and when i came from work today one of them had died. I am just heart broken. Who would think you could get so attached to a fish?
