We've had this little guy almost a year. Will he eventually lose all his orange? He used to be 2/3 orange and 1/3 white (left: July 2020), which has reversed over the past few months (right: currently).

It doesn't matter to me either way, just curious?

Goldfish can always go through a color change. There isn't really anyway of knowing until it happens :)

 To me, it just looks like he's been properly fed since being in your care and just normally growing now as a whole  :)  If you look at his tail, there is actually more orange on it now than when you first got him :teehee

That's true - he started to lose some of the orange on his tail, then got a few orange streaks at the end. Guess I'll wait and see what else happens! 🙂

Thanks for the insight. I was curious because our other fish hasn't changed color at all. 🤷

White and black seem to be unstable colors in goldfish. Now of course Gold is the most common color, so goldfish have a tendency to change to orange. lol

Your fish looks fine and it appears you have done a great job of grooming him. In your first pic he appears emaciated and in the second pic very healthy, great job

I agree the first pic looks like they didn't feed him much at the store. Poor fish :(
