hi everyone!

Just got a new goldfish. I have just noticed it has a small red patch on its belly, what do you think it is?

Thanks

Laura

Could just be bruising, or is there any red marks on the fins as well?

Did you notice this red patch when you got him? How was the ride in transit from the fish store? How big of a tank is he in now and with what other fish?

It could have been superficial trauma from the ride home.

He had a good ride home and a good intro into to his tank.

Laura,

Unless you didn't hit any bumps on the road on the way home or his water didn't slosh around in the bag, then there is always the possibility of trauma. Goldies can be very susceptable to that kind of thing. Check out Pandora's post in the diseases forum to rule out any of those diseases.
