What is this on my goldfish?

Recommended Posts

Recently I got a fish from a friend who neglected his fish, he kept the goldfish in very cloudy water and in a 4 gallon aquarium for a couple of years and didn't really care about him. The fish has had blood lines on his fins and such since I got him, will these heal up? He is a fancy goldfish, I think a fantail goldfish to be exact.

Hi, welcome to kokos. I realize you only just got this fish, but if you fill out this form it could help us a lot, so we know what you have to work with. I suspect it's a lot to do with poor water quality, but there may be more going on as well.
