Red Spot on Head
« on: August 24, 2011, 11:53:01 PM »

Hello,

My goldfish Pudgie has a red spot on the side of his wen that developed overnight; he is still eating normally and seems to be acting okay but I don't have a great deal of experience with this type of injury/illness. I was wondering if anyone could identify and/or recommend treatment for this ailment. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Anyway about the illness I think its just a color change all goldfishes change color after a while.

Don't worry, Sparkynixon, your goldfish is perfectly healthy! Because your fish displays no abnormal behaviors, is eating well, and has a pretty healthy appearance, I believe the fish is only obtaining the color of a red-capped lionhead. The wen is probably taking on a red color in an area due to the fish's genetics. There is little you can do to try to change it back to the way it was before, but I would say I think it's adorable!  Wink

That's one nicely colored spot Tongue As already mentioned, the fish is perfectly healthy Smiley
If you're still concerned, you could test the water and, if needed, perform a 50% water change.
He's just lovely! Cheesy
