Red fish


Red fish for aquarium

Red fish for the aquarium are considered quite catchy, and not everyone considers it necessary to run them into the home pond. The fact is that pets with this body color can become victims of predatory neighbors, if there are any. With improper compatibility, red fish will be injured. On the other hand, with good compatibility, red fish can be settled with black, yellow, white, orange, blue neighbors. In a tropical aquarium, this contrast will look great, especially against the background of plants and bright decorations.

Arovan has a red color for a long time - from 10 to 50 years.

Oranda - Red Hat

Who among us in childhood didn’t want to catch a wish-fulfilling Goldfish? And to get it at home? Having matured, it became clear that the dream is easy to fulfill, and it is easier to settle a goldfish in an aquarium. True, it does not build a house for you, like a magic one, but it can become a fabulous decoration for it.


Oranda red cap will be a great embodiment of a dream into reality. From its fabulous prototype, it is distinguished only by a small wen of red color on its head, from which it got its name.

Goldfish have always been popular with aquarists around the world, and the red cap is a popular type of it. She is not just beautiful, she is defiantly beautiful.

This fish appeared as a result of selection and was bred in China. And the delicate, elegant taste of Oriental masters is beyond doubt, and the fish turned out to be a match for him.

The swollen, oblong body of an ovoid shape is compensated for by luxurious long fins and tail, developing as a train dress woven from the finest Chinese silk.

The similarity of the shape of the body and the fins with the tail tail gave rise to the rumor that these two species are relatives. Perhaps this is so. However, their main difference in the red growth that covers the entire surface of the head, except the eyes.

Body color can be varied: chocolate, black, red, red and black, but most often white and gold. Particularly advantageous with the red hat of the fish looks exactly the white color of the scales. White-red combination is always winning and most memorable. Take, for example, carp koi. By the way, the oranda also belongs to the carp family.

Difference male from female

The sexual characteristics of these fish are weakly expressed, and it is unlikely that it will be possible to determine the sex of a particular individual with an absolute guarantee before spawning. Males, as a rule, are slightly smaller than females, and during the reproduction period white specks appear on their heads.

Orands are long-lived and, with proper maintenance, live in an aquarium for up to 15 years, growing to 24 cm.

Compatibility with other fish

Peaceful nature allows you to get along with any neighbors, except for aggressive species of fish, for example, cichlids, barbs, gourami, etc.

Little Red Riding Hood easily converges with small, so-called fodder fish, for example, with guppies, swordtails, mollies and others, since by nature it is not a predator.

Behavior features

There is an opinion that these fish were dirty because of their love for food.

Yes, the fish is really a big lover of food, but it does not pollute the aquarium as much as they often say, frightening, sellers of pet stores. Regular cleaning every two weeks is enough for their maintenance.

Otherwise, if you still have doubts about their cleanliness, it is recommended to have a catfish, which perfectly copes with the role of aquarium orderly.

Conditions of detention

Aquarium. Based on the size to which the fish can grow, an aquarium for its comfortable living should be chosen with a volume of 50 liters per 1 individual. The more animals, the larger should be the aquarium.

Registration. You should not clutter the space with plants, stones, snags and other ornaments, as the fish prefers space for free swimming.

Bottom. It should be borne in mind that Oranda is a lover of digging in the ground, so it is better to cover the bottom of the aquarium with river sand or fine gravel. There should be no large or sharp stones, as the animal can easily get hurt.

Vegetation. Preference is given to plants with a strong root system. If the roots are weak, they must be hidden deep in the ground. It is best to choose hard-leaved representatives of the flora, such as sagittaria, fern, microsorum, tsiperus, etc.

Water temperature should be 16-24 ° C, pH 5-8, gH 6-18. Strong aeration and filtration is mandatory, as there will always be food residues in the water, as well as a weekly replacement of of the water.


Oranges prefer food of plant origin: finely chopped lettuce or spinach. You can give dry food in the form of flakes. They do not disdain and live food, for example, moth.

Since the fish are voracious, the main thing is to follow the feeding regime and not overfeed.

Once a day they give food to adults, and twice to young animals. There is a principle: it is better to underfeed than to feed.


Pubertal Oranda reaches 1.5 years of its life. For spawning a separate aquarium from 50 liters is required, in which for 1-2 weeks the producers are transplanted - one female and a couple or three males.

Sand is used as a soil in which several small-leaved bushes are planted. Future parents are fed abundantly (again, not to overeating) with various foods.

Spawning lasts 3-4 hours in the morning. Immediately after it, adults are removed from the aquarium.

You should inspect the deferred caviar and remove from it cloudy or whitish eggs. On the fifth day, the larvae appear, and after another 2-3 days the fry begin their independent journey into life.

In the first days of their life, babies should be fed with live dust or special foods, which are sold in pet stores in an assortment. As they grow, the young are transferred to a common aquarium.

Oranda red cap - revived children's dream of a goldfish. The main thing to remember is that it will not fulfill your desires for you. It is useless to shout when something does not work: “Hey, hey, Golden Fish! What are you? Don't you hear that?”, As Vovka from the Tridentity Kingdom shouted. Remember what that wonderful cartoon ended and move on.
