The red-cap oranda has a short, deep body, with a short slightly down tunred caudal peduncle. Some strains have a white body with a red coloration restricted to the raspberry-like growth on the head, known as the "wen." The dorsal fin is held high, and the anal and caudal fins are double.
Males develop white tubercules on the gill covers and leading rays of the pectoral fins.

Oranda Special Care
Like many of the goldfish strains with more fully developed fins, the oranda needs very clean water conditions to prevent fin damage and deterioration.
