View Full Version : Common goldfish vs. Orandas?

My question is which of the two produces more waste ? Of similar size?

They'll both produce about the same, depending on their size and how much you feed them. They're the same species, after all.

If you're trying to decide which one to keep, I'd be more concerned about tank size than waste. Common goldfish need more space because they're faster, more active fish. Commons will get longer but orandas can get much wider.

Read the size expectancy link in my signature. That'll tell ya how much waste these guys produce. Big goldfish, heavy wasters.
