Oranda wen

My orandas wen has lost almost all of its red color it's an orangish color now. Is there any way I can restore its color?

Unlikely. There are color enhancing speciality formulas for specific color in goldfish but I believe your fish is white to begin with so a red formula would affect his white as well.

Hikari is the only line that makes speciality fancy foods for red, white, etc that i know of though there may be some new brands. The result in a white fish may be orangey undertones but I believe some of their top of the line products may not have the same effect. Too expensive for me so I have not tried these. The saki and lionhead formulas actually have very little effect on whites in my experience and produce vibrant colors.

Hikari lionhead pellets. That's what I'm going to get for my little red cap.
