Just my thoughts but I think you should eat the orange instead of giving it to your fish. Citrus fruit wouldn't be a part of their natural diet so I'm not sure it would be good for them but it would be for you!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

An orange? Uh... yeah I vote no. I don't know if it would be harmful (could be), but I don't really think he would like it. The acidity of oranges is often a deterrent for most animals I believe.

Agreed. High acidity plus lots of sugar (which isn't a part of the diets of most fish) would probably not be a good idea.
