#77525 Big Sakura Ingot Oranda

This is another extremely POWERFUL fish!  Pics don’t do this massive fish justice.  This one also has slight headgrowth feature that’s actually on the eyes….it moves with the eyes.  I’ve seen this before on a few goldfish, and it gives them a very unique look.  Active fish with excellent motion and balance.

#77477 Tri-Color Ingot (Short-tail Ryukin/Oranda Cross)

I’ve found that ingot types are derived in different ways by different breeders.  This breeder crosses short-tail ryukin and orandas to achieve these awesome compact fish with cute heads.  This is one of the last ones from my 2016 summer shipment.   This fish leans forward slightly on average, but is NOT a head stander.

#77391 Black Short-Tail Telescope

When I was younger, these were called “China Dolls”.  Since then, they’ve become hard to find.  This is one of the last ones available from last summer’s shipment.  This fish is very cute, and has a slightly misshappen, crooked mouth and lower jaw that to me makes it even more cute.

If you want to ADD 12 oz./340 grams. of Soilent Green to your FISH ORDER, please use this “buy it now” option.  This will add it to your fish invoice, and there will be no additional shipping charges when added to your fish shipment.   I don’t have another way implemented to add food to your order, so will be using this method for now.  

If you want to JUST BUY FOOD, please use the link on the homepage, which adds $6.80 to cover USPS Priority Shipping.  

I have been advocating the use of moist food for years.  Moist food moves more easily through the digestive tract, results in more efficient nutrient assimilation, and also minimizes balance/buoyancy problems many fish have after eating dry food.  Unfortunately, most goldfish foods have no moisture content at all.   That’s because, with the exception of frozen foods, others would spoil and have no shelf-life.  So, most goldfish food is “dry as a bone”, and ultimately not the best for the fish, even if the ingredients are high quality.   Our fish farmers raise the goldfish on moist food, so it makes no sense to switch them to a dry diet after they are imported.  I’ve addressed this issue for years by “hydrating” all of the pellets we’ve fed.  This involved a slow process of introducing moisture and refrigerating pellets to make sure they were soft throughout, and not just wetted on the outside.   This made them like little meatballs, but they still held together and didn’t fall apart in the tank.  Well, I have quit messing around with pellets!  That’s because after months of trials, and many conversations with fellow hobbyists for over a year, I feel that Soilent Green is the best solution for the main staple in the Goldfish diet.  I used to make my own gel food, but it was time consuming, messy, and I never felt confident that the mix of ingredients was optimal.  Soilent Green solves these issues with an easy to make product.   Brought to a boil in a non-stick pan, and poured onto a non-stick cookie sheet, it gels quickly with little to no clean up.  Anything left in the pan gels up and peels right off.  Once a batch is made, I chop it up on a cutting board into bite size pieces and store in the fridge.  I am actually making pounds of it every other day, but the average hobbyist should be able to make a small batch every week or two, spending less than 15 minutes to do so. I’ve always said that I’d rather concentrate on the fish, and not get into selling products or food.   That was mostly because I never felt enough confidence in any food that I wanted to promote or represent it.  The other reason is the nature of internet commerce.  Huge companies can offer some retail products for less than I can even get them wholesale.  Being a small business, it’s hard to compete, and I simply wasn’t going to try to.  I’d have to buy, stock, sell, and ship hundreds of pounds of food just to make a tiny profit.  Again, it made sense to just focus on the fish, especially since that takes a huge amount of time already, and because goldfish is what Dandy Orandas does best.  : ) All of that being said, I have now decided to offer this Repashy Soilent Green.  After years of being asked about food, and seeing many people struggle with food related issues, I think this is a great solution.  Repashy has high quality ingredients, plus the moisture that I’ve always advocated, and we’ve seen great results using it.   Fish are active, healthy, with vibrant color and none of the goofy post-feeding buoyancy issues seen with dry foods.  Repashy also has a good relationship with its retailers, and sets MAP pricing for their products.  This is Minimum Advertised Pricing, which keeps huge sellers from undercutting small business.   So, you should see similar pricing no matter what the source, leaving you to support good merchants instead of buying simply based on price. SHIPPING INFO.  If you are getting fish, a 340 gram bag can be added to your shipment for no additional shipping cost.  If you are just getting food, then shipping will be via USPS priority mail, and will be $6.80, for a total of $26.79 delivered.  (Please note if just getting food, please use the link on the homepage for food.)

I have been advocating the use of moist food for years.  Moist food moves more easily through the digestive tract, results in more efficient nutrient assimilation, and also minimizes balance/buoyancy problems many fish have after eating dry food.  Unfortunately, most goldfish foods have no moisture content at all.   That’s because, with the exception of frozen foods, others would spoil and have no shelf-life.  So, most goldfish food is “dry as a bone”, and ultimately not the best for the fish, even if the ingredients are high quality.   Our fish farmers raise the goldfish on moist food, so it makes no sense to switch them to a dry diet after they are imported.  I’ve addressed this issue for years by “hydrating” all of the pellets we’ve fed.  This involved a slow process of introducing moisture and refrigerating pellets to make sure they were soft throughout, and not just wetted on the outside.   This made them like little meatballs, but they still held together and didn’t fall apart in the tank.  Well, I have quit messing around with pellets!  That’s because after months of trials, and many conversations with fellow hobbyists for over a year, I feel that Soilent Green is the best solution for the main staple in the Goldfish diet.  I used to make my own gel food, but it was time consuming, messy, and I never felt confident that the mix of ingredients was optimal.  Soilent Green solves these issues with an easy to make product.   Brought to a boil in a non-stick pan, and poured onto a non-stick cookie sheet, it gels quickly with little to no clean up.  Anything left in the pan gels up and peels right off.  Once a batch is made, I chop it up on a cutting board into bite size pieces and store in the fridge.  I am actually making pounds of it every other day, but the average hobbyist should be able to make a small batch every week or two, spending less than 15 minutes to do so. I’ve always said that I’d rather concentrate on the fish, and not get into selling products or food.   That was mostly because I never felt enough confidence in any food that I wanted to promote or represent it.  The other reason is the nature of internet commerce.  Huge companies can offer some retail products for less than I can even get them wholesale.  Being a small business, it’s hard to compete, and I simply wasn’t going to try to.  I’d have to buy, stock, sell, and ship hundreds of pounds of food just to make a tiny profit.  Again, it made sense to just focus on the fish, especially since that takes a huge amount of time already, and because goldfish is what Dandy Orandas does best.  : ) All of that being said, I have now decided to offer this Repashy Soilent Green.  After years of being asked about food, and seeing many people struggle with food related issues, I think this is a great solution.  Repashy has high quality ingredients, plus the moisture that I’ve always advocated, and we’ve seen great results using it.   Fish are active, healthy, with vibrant color and none of the goofy post-feeding buoyancy issues seen with dry foods.  Repashy also has a good relationship with its retailers, and sets MAP pricing for their products.  This is Minimum Advertised Pricing, which keeps huge sellers from undercutting small business.   So, you should see similar pricing no matter what the source, leaving you to support good merchants instead of buying simply based on price.

Striking color pattern on this nice short-tail.

This is another extremely POWERFUL fish!  Pics don’t do this massive fish justice.  This one also has slight headgrowth feature that’s actually on the eyes….it moves with the eyes.  I’ve seen this before on a few goldfish, and it gives them a very unique look.  Active fish with excellent motion and balance.

Very unusual and pretty color on this large oranda.  Great overall fish.  Very active and friendly.

Only a couple crown pearlscale left, and this is the only one in this color.  Nice overall fish with cute crown.

This thing is POWERFUL!  Stand back unless you want splashed!  Pics don’t do this massive fish justice.  In addition to cute pompoms, this one also has slight headgrowth feature that’s actually on the eyes….it moves with the eyes.  I’ve seen this before on a few goldfish, and it gives them a very unique look….kinda like eyebrows.   Active fish with excellent motion and balance.

I’ve found that ingot types are derived in different ways by different breeders.  This breeder crosses short-tail ryukin and orandas to achieve these awesome compact fish with cute heads.  This is one of the last ones from my 2016 summer shipment.   This fish leans forward slightly on average, but is NOT a head stander.  Very pretty color on this super stout fish in large size.

One of just two left.  The lavender on this one is nearly white.  Hard to find color on this pretty young butterfly.

One of just two of these left.  Very pretty and hard to find color on this nice young butterfly with showy tail.

Deep body on this large oranda.  Striking color pattern on this big fish makes it really stand out.

Striking color on this powerful oranda in large size.  Nice overall fish.  This one has a slight “bubble” feature under its chin that pulses in and out.  I’ve seen this many times over the years with goldfish, and it is not a problem.

Stout body on this one with large head.  Very pretty kirin color on this impressive fish.

When I was younger, these were called “China Dolls”.  Since then, they’ve become hard to find.  This is one of the last ones available from last summer’s shipment.  This fish is very cute, and has a slightly misshappen, crooked mouth and lower jaw that to me makes it even more cute.

Pompom orandas have been hard to find in nice quality.  This one is very nice, plus has slight bubble or frogface feature under each eye.  Very unusual fish, and also very spunky and active.

Gorgeous color on this super spunky and active oranda.
