Is it a patchy change? Goldfish do sometimes go white, or patchy.

How old is he?

Re: goldfish turning white #4
My little fancy tail was white and now turning orange very very slowly - as they can change colour with age I don't think you have anything to worry about

Re: goldfish turning white #7
my littlist goldfish was a gold shiny colour all over when i bought it, & was about the size of a wcmm! now she is about an nearly 2 inches long, and body has gone orange, and she has a black stripe from head to her tail! drastic colour change, you wouldnt think it was the same fish if i hadnt watched it change colour!
