    Goldfish Has 2 Black Scales

    Additional information: *These scales were noticed last night. *I recently bought filter sponges as I was advised to. They were definitely the wrong size, even after cutting (too thick??), but I cut them thinner and essentially stacked them in the filter next to my current filter system after...

    Goldfish Has 2 Black Scales

    Here are the best pictures I could get, the problem is not with uploading them, but rather with the scales being small (and apparently quite shiny) and the fish moving haha. It just looks like a small black dot. I went ahead and ran those tests, high range ph (good for goldfish) was a perfect...

    Goldfish Has 2 Black Scales

    My lovely goldfish (who just went through a color change from its baby brown color to white/gold/orange) has 2 black scales. The ammonia level is at a perfect 0 and its behavior is normal (still swimming around, eating, alert), so I don't believe it has an ammonia burn or a fungus. As I said, it...

    Okay thanks, I will definitely switch. Do you have a preferred brand of sponge, and do you know where I can find one?

    Brown Goldfish Turning Pink

    Jan C.: that's good to know thanks! Colin: Alright thank you, I'll look into the salt. Deanasue: Oh my goodness, I had no idea it would grow to be that big; it was one of the smallest goldfish I had seen when I got it.

    Brown Goldfish Turning Pink

    The ammonia and PH were done more recently than the nitrate/nitrite testing. I can do the latter again if you think its an issue with them. Ammonia was good; between 0 and 0.25. PH was a little elevated; however, it was normal for this particular tank. I read somewhere that goldfish like a PH of...

    Brown Goldfish Turning Pink

    I got my 2 goldfish back in April. Since then one of them has died (I believe it was a genetic issue as my other fish was fine and all of the tests I ran on the tank were normal). Now I only have my brown goldfish left. Recently, it has been getting pale in most places except for a few brown...
