Color Addition

I was just wondering if goldies can suddenly add colors. eg, Can a R/W turn into a calico? I know that they lose colors really easily, but what about adding?

I don't know whether it actually occurs, but as a side-comment to your question: the red/orange and black colouration on goldfish have a very different origin/mechanism (About Goldfish Colour), so the one turning into the other seems unlikely, in the sense that you might e.g. have a white/orange and a black/white colour change occuring simultanuously on the same region by accident (I'm unawere of any mechanical/fysiological reason which might make this impossibly), but that would rather be just a coincidence in that case.

Have you got any pictures? If the black streaks are along the rays of the tail, then I think it's ok. If it's on the edges of the tail, then it might be ammonia burns.

I will try to get some pictures, the streaks are along her rays. I don't think it could possibly be ammonia burns (hope, hope, hope) because the ammonia is non exsistant in her tank. She's in QT and I change/test the water everyday! I'll try for pictures

thanks

You can't really see where her tail is but it basically goes to the end of my palm. The black line is what I'm talking about. I felt so badly picking her up but she refuses to stay still for pictures!

I have been watching some color on my little white pearlscale move around. Almost overnight one of her ventral fins went all black and now here belly is turning golden. A spot on her side had me freaked out but I just keep watching it and it seems natural.
