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!

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.
