The Red Cap Oranda Goldfish is white with a bright orange "beret." Hand-selected for unique coloration and overall superior health, these exotic Red Cap Oranda Goldfish are tended to by the PetSolutions husbandry staff following their importation. Hardy and long-lived, they can survive cooler temperatures. Extended periods below 60 F or above 80 F may not be tolerated well. Because they need some vegetable matter, Red Cap Oranda Goldfish may cause damage to finer-leaved plants, but typically do no damage to thicker, hardy bog plants. While flake food will suffice for Red Cap Oranda Goldfish, many aquatic professionals recommend a good-quality pellet food of no more than 30% protein to help keep these premium specimens in ideal health.
