Calico Oranda Goldfish
The Calico is a popular color variation of the oranda and features variation versions of a mottled red, white, and black body.
The word "Oranda" is Dutch for Lionhead, but unlike the Lionhead goldfish the Oranda has a prominent dorsal fin. Like the lionhead goldfish, oranda goldfish were selective bred to create the bubbly head the Chinese call the "wen" and we usually call the "crown" or "cap". The wen of the calico oranda is usually red.
