What can be wrong
« on: March 20, 2010, 10:42:48 AM »

2 of my Goldfish have turned pinkish/light red in colour & the black 1 has a white stain near the tail fin.  Can anyone please assist in telling me what this may be or causing this Huh

First of all, whenever your fish are acting strangely, test the water. Check on the pH, nitrites, nitrates and ammonia. If any of these are too high (Except for pH, where you should rather worry about it being low) you can be pretty certain that the water quality is the reason for your fish to feel uncomfortable.
Secondly, how about saying where exactly the red color is? Or how the fish are behaving?
It's pretty hard to give a proper diagnose with such small pieces of info d:

Hallo, 
Thanks for the reply.  Their behavior is normal, they do & act exactly like they do everyday nothing strange.  They don't even look asif something is bothering them.  And for the colour, it is their whole body that turned that redish colour. 
The black one has only got this little white mark on its sides close the the back fin, and he is also acting normal. Huh

In that case, it could be good to simply buy a water test kit (for the parameters I mentioned in the last answer), or bring a water sample to your pet shop and ask them to test it for you. Because to be honest, I don't really know what this could be otherwise...

Yes do a water test, and if everything is normal, look for bugs or open sores.. basically keep a very close eye on them.

But as Nossie and Katarine already mentioned, please test the water.
