    gold fish are not gold in nature so there is nothing wrong

    is it a cotton wool like growth on its scales? sounds like it could have something fungal.

    If you leave your goldfish in the dark, you probably have noticed that it becomes a little paler at night. And you should also know that if your Goldfish is left indoors without full spectrum lighting, it will change from a reddish orange to a pale orange color with silver washouts.

    :)they can change colour as they get older

    mine does this all the time it has to do with the temperature of the water, so i am told! :thumbsup:

    true, but could be an indication of a problem as "gold fish" are naturally brown

    sounds like geruanimums. doesn't their colour depend on the soil?

    no its a light issue

    It is not getting enough light, they are like plants, they go pale if you leave them in the dark

    sorry to tell you but mine died not long after going a silvery white colour! x

    Make it a little breadcrumb coat

    saw a ghost?

    mine too

    seriously, hope the lil one gets better.

    My Goldfish is over 12 years old now - Miracle Fish - Yeh its fins have grown much longer and wavy and its lost its vibrant colouration - As the fish gets older it loses its colouration, both because of light and loss of pigment - Think of it the same as a greying human - As we get older - We lose the pigment in our hair and so become grey.

    ur goldfish is just a ruffian
