you can see if cynthia from east coast ranchu has any nice orandas. her main stock is ranchu. she does have orandas from time to time. you can message her from her face book page at east coast ranchu.

there is also dandy orandas and raingarden goldfish. these get spendy with the shipping though.

it will take me a few days to figure out who is breeding orandas right now. will try to find someone closer to your area.

as far as oranda specific tank set ups,you can just google oranda tanks. there are some bare bottom and some sand bottom tanks that will come up.

i just emailed cynthia. will let you know when she responds.

use the search feature on this site. type in oranda tanks. look down for a thread started by olympia. it is called a new 'scape for my 90 gallon goldfish -pics. she has a very nice tank.

you do not have to only look at oranda specific tanks,any fancy goldfish tanks will give you an idea.

i should put this out there. there is absolutely nothing wrong with getting a fish from your local fish store.i do not want you to think i am some sort of fish snob. that is not the case. the two orandas i have right now are both from pet stores.as long as they are healthy,and they make you happy. mine have their imperfections, but i love them dearly.

also found some reds and red and whites in ohio. his are 3/4 inch long. it makes me giggle to think about two teeny baby orandas in a big 75 gallon tank.

cynthia from east coast ranchu just emailed me.she only has a couple of adults available now.she also has a bunch of fry that will be ready in about 2 months. i am familiar with all of the breeders i have referred to. they all have very nice fish. wish i had more room for some lil' oranda babies now. if you need anymore help,feel free to send me a message. i have subscribed to this thread,so i will check back here.
