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 :(

He's loving life now! 🙂

Here's a current pic (right) compared to five days ago (left). At this rate he'll be completely white soon! 😯 Will he ever get his orange back? Just curious.

I had a fish that had really bright orange for years and then within a couple of weeks his orange completely faded and he ended up completely white, he's never gained back any of his orange.

 

I unfortunately don't have photos of the process on this computer or else I'd share them.

I had no idea this was possible until now! 🤷

He was cute when he was orange with a white belly, and he's cute now too. ♥️ I just didn't realize how fast it would happen! He may be completely white soon. Here he is today.

Oh he's looking quite cute in his new outfit. I like it. I wonder if he will keep some of the orange.

Oh yes, he's quite dapper now. Very formal. 🤵♂️😂 

No sign of the orange fade slowing down yet... We shall see! 🤷

Would love to see any color change pictures anyone has. 🙂

Oh wow! Looks like the same thing... Just a white belly eventually became completely white. Beautiful both ways. 🙂 And I'm assuming the white stayed? Thanks for sharing!
