Changing colour of goldfish
Category: Coldwater

Author: Jo Thelwell (7:57 pm)
Hello,

Was just wondering if anyone could help me with the colour change in my goldfish.

I have just had one 17 year old die which was completely orange and had been all its life. The other 3 that are left, (and the previous 4 before it) all started turning white.
Most things I've read on the internet have said it is due to light.
For 15 years of my fishes life they were exposes to indirect sunlight through daytime. There tank developed a leak and had to be replace with a new one with artificial light. (This freaked them out, so only put on when they wanted feeding, worked out ok, and they started associated the light with food.) Left on for 4 hours then switched off.
3 that are left are almost white now. So if it involves how much light they get, how come one of them stayed orange.

Also got 3 black fish (originally) after 3 years one is orange, one is turning orange and one is still black.

If anyone could shed some light on why they change colour please let me know.

Thanks in advance
