The fish can do well in a tank that’s 20 gallons in size, but we believe that should be considered the bare minimum. We recommend starting with a tank of 30 gallons to make sure your oranda goldfish is healthy and happy.

How long does it take for an oranda goldfish to reach full size?
A goldfish will reach 2 inches in 6 months. By the end of the first year, it will reach over 3 inches if it has adequate nutrition.
Do oranda goldfish get lonely?
You might be surprised to learn that they don’t. It is not as far as we know. goldfish are not likely to be lonely based on everything we know about them. They live in groups of up to 10 fish, and they spend most of their time together in the same tank.
This means that if you keep them in separate tanks, you will not be able to get to know them as well as you can with a group of fish. In fact, the more fish you have in your tank the less likely you are to have a good relationship with them.
Goldfish do not like to be separated from each other, even if it means they have to spend more time in one tank than the other. The reason for this is simple: they need the company of other fish in order to survive.
If you try to separate them from the rest of the group they will start to feel lonely and will begin to swim away from you, which will make it harder for them to find their way back to you.
Can you touch oranda goldfish?
I handle my goldfish all the time as they get very big and using your hands at that point is actually more of a chore than it is a fun thing to do.
What do oranda goldfish like in their tank?
The water temperature should be kept within the range of 70-75F. Orandas are very sensitive to changes in water parameters. When choosing a substrate keep in mind their needs and the type of substrate you will be using. For example, if you are going to use a gravel substrate, make sure that it is not too soft or too hard.
If you plan on using a hardwood substrate such as cedar, be sure to choose one that is at least as hard as your substrate. The substrate should also be able to hold a good amount of water and should not be too wet. As a general rule of thumb, keep your fish in a tank that has a minimum of 6 inches of space between the bottom and top of the tank.
This will allow the fish to have plenty of room to move around and for the water to circulate around them. A tank with more than this will not provide enough room for them to swim freely and will result in them getting stuck in one spot.
How often should I feed my oranda goldfish?
It’s important to avoid overfeeding goldfish as this can cause indigestion and/or taint the tank. A good rule of thumb is to only feed the goldfish an amount that they can consume in less than two minutes, or less than the amount the fish can eat in a single feeding session. Goldfish are omnivores, meaning that they will eat almost anything that is available to them.
They will also eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, as well as insects and other small invertebrates. Goldfish also have a very high tolerance for salt water, so they can be kept in saltwater aquariums for extended periods of time without any ill effects. However, it is recommended that you do not overfeed your fish as it can lead to a number of health problems, such as anemia (low blood count) and an inability to maintain proper water quality.
How many Oranda goldfish can I put in a 10 gallon tank?
The 10-gallon tank is only suitable for one or two baby fish. You will need at least 20 gallons of space for them to grow in when they start outgrowing the tank. If you are looking for a tank that is easy to clean and maintain, this is the one for you. It is also a great choice for beginners who are new to aquascaping.
Is it cruel to have one goldfish?
The goldfish can live alone. Many goldfish can live long, healthy and happy lives on their own. Not all goldfish will be happy on their own, and some would prefer the company of other fish.
Do goldfish need complete darkness to sleep?
Goldfish don’t sleep at night like people do, but they do sleep better when it’s dark and quiet. If you want your fish to sleep, you need to make sure they have a place to lay their head. You can do this by placing a piece of cardboard on top of their tank, or you can use a bedding material such as paper towels or cotton balls.
Make sure the cardboard is large enough so that the fish can lie on it comfortably, but not so large that they can’t turn around to look at you. This will make it easier for them to see you, and it will also make them more likely to lie down and rest.
