Has anyone had experience with Orandas in a pond with small skimmers? Are they a hazzard to them or is it OK?

Anyplace a fancy can get stuck it will.

I agree with Warrenrrr.

They can even get stuck between two pots if they are too close together, between edging rocks, in the top of a potted plant.

You have to oranda proof your pond, just the same as child proofing your home.

Yep. But anyone that has kept these fancies, knows they aren't built for strong, effecient swimming . . . just beauty.

It would also be a bad idea to put them in a pond of Koi that have been introduced to Manda Fu. :eek1:
