Tri colour to Bi Colour #1
Jeremy, my little Comet, recently came out of his salt bath - after having something on his gill

I noticed the other day, he has almost totally lost the black patches on his tail, the spot on his dorsal fin is still there. You can just see little black specs in his tail.
Could the salt have bleached them out?
I will try and find to pics to show the difference
He seems the same as ever - fine

Re: Tri colour to Bi Colour #3
Hi Linsay I know we discused this yesterday by Msn, but for others who read this I will breifly explain why Jeremy has lost his black tips. Goldfish start out the colour of the wild crusian carp then change colour as they grow, so you may buy a fish with a lot of black only to find that as it gets bigger the black dissapears which is normal and nothing to worry about.
