That's an exception since pingpongs swim so slow that orandas seem very fast compared to them.They might get outcompeted for food or harassed. But IMO Veiltail ryukin and orandas are OK.

There are other exceptions, like bubble-eye and celestial eye goldfish, which do better if kept with members of the same variety.

Your fish love watching you as much as you love watching them. So please practice responsible fishkeeping.

Lol I guess. My friend also showed me his tank with crabs I was amused. I might do that if I cant find the perfect colored ryukin, and orandas I want the ryukins body whiteand all the fins to be orange and at the end white. orandas I want a black one and a orange one with a long flowing tail and its Yellow under the belly. and t he body is orange but the hue is the one I saw in petsmart xD I get verrryyy picky with goldfish.

That's not 5-yr old unless that is already stunted. At 4-5", it should be at least 1-2 years old. Goldfish can live for at least 20 years if given proper care for.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
