Getting oranda fish

Hello everyone. Can someone give me advise on keeping a oranda Fish?
I saw 1 when I went to my local fish shop and thinking of getting 1.
Are they easy to keep? Any certain things I need on my tank? What sort of setup would a oranda be happy in? Tank size?
Just the general stuff really 😊

Thank you

You should really research about fancy goldfish like orandas before getting into one. They are better kept with other goldfish. You need at least 20 galon per fish, very good filtration a cycled tank and good oxygenation.
