Solid Gold Visits Dandy Orandas



I took a weekend trip to Michigan to show you guys a little tour of the Dandy Orandas fish room!  It was like I died and went to goldfish heaven!  There were about 1,500 goldfish on site; broadtail ryukins, ranchus, orandas, pearlscales, bubble eyes, butterflies, shubunkins, black comets, tosakin, and so much more.  Never before have I seen such sheer numbers of beautiful fish all together in one place.  Huge thanks to Ken Fischer for letting me visit and film a little tour for you guys.  We also filmed an interview, which you will get to see next week, so stay tuned!  These fish are sold in weekly auctions starting (almost) every Friday night at 8pm EST at DandyOrandas.com.  Ken imports them from various goldfish farms in China, quarantines them and makes sure they’re good and healthy, and then sells them here in the United States.

    Thank you for posting this video. Dandy Orandas IS awesome! The shear scale of the operation is impressive enough but that the fish are also so well cared-for and healthy is so wonderful! I’ve just purchased my first fish from Ken a week ago and should be arriving in a few days…can hardly wait!

    Just received my Calico Ingot Oranda this morning. OMG I am so happy with him! He is cute, friendly and just brimming with personality. My other Red \x26amp; White Long tail Oranda \x26quot;Olivia\x26quot; is obviously impressed by him as well. Within 20 minutes of their initial introduction they began swimming together side-by-side up and down the length of the tank. One of the things I like about Dandy Orandas is that Ken gives descriptions of each individual fish including the personality. I have had goldfish for over 35 years now, and this little Ingot is by far my favorite. Thank you Jenny for introducing us to Dandy Orandas!
