This fish is not of the variety that will survive the winter ice surface crust if there is not enough oxygen. Some hardy varieties of fancy goldfish will, as well as common and wild varieties. But Oranda is no among them.
In the winter they need to be brought indoors: Although, they can live in an unheated aquarium.
It is important to note that most countries have made the sale of goldfish bowls illegal.
It has been discovered internationally that much like lawn darts, there bowls do more harm than good.
De oxygenation and ammonia nitrate poisoning almost always kills the fish and sends it into the next dimension suffering.
Of course this is a shock to adults and children who most likely viewed the creature as apet. Pets, we all know, are adopted family members.

Oranda have a very interesting head, body, and fins that billow like tails on a kite rolling with the wave of the wind.
This similarity is not surprising since really fish do fly just like kites and birds it the current of water; the substance that they also breathe.
Their bodies look like strength power lifters, bulky round and strong.
The red cap variety look like they have hair on their head. They do not have hair, it just looks like a bowl cut.
