The headgrowth of young fry may take one to two years to develop. The oranda can reach 20 to 31 centimeters (8 to 12 inches) in length. Sometimes the wen grows enormously covering the eyes of the goldfish. Due to this, the eyesight may become limited or even blind. Special care should be given to the wen because it is prone to bacterial infections. The Oranda can tolerate temperatures from 17-28°C (65-80+°F).More recently blue scale oranda have been developed but these fish are very rare. Oranda goldfish are especially sensitive to cold temperatures, more so than other goldfish.
