The Otohime is a fancy breed of Japanese Rice Fish. The name derives from Japanese folklore of the undersea Dragon Palace and Princess Otohime. The fish itself has an orange body with black coloration on top. It is somewhat reminiscent of koi breeds like Hi Utsuri or Goshiki, though not quite.

Due to the highly variable nature of the breed, the fish you receive may look different to the ones shown in the images / videos provided. Similar to koi, smaller and younger fish may not be as developed as older individuals.

You will receive 6 medaka as well as 1 or 2 additional bonus medaka per group. We can mix and match different breeds of medaka of equivalent value or less on request. Please check our list of breeds to see what we may have currently not listed. We may not always have enough for an order, but we may have 1 or 2 of a particular breed available.

  • Availability of rice fish will depend on the availability of a vacant pond during spawning season.
  • Please be aware that there are no guarantees on all livestock once the bag is opened. Please contact us and send images/videos immediately if you receive livestock that is dead on arrival.
  • Goldorado Aquatics currently only ships to the 48 states in the contiguous United States.
