Healing Ammonia Burns?

4 posts in this topic

Hi guys!

 

Almost two weeks ago I took in this little fantail goldfish from a girl who had been keeping him in a small fish bowl in her dorm room. When I got him he had a few black spots and streaks of black in his fins but I was unsure if the black was from healing ammonia burns or natural pigmentation. He’s now in my 60 gallon with other goldfish and seems to be doing quite well but the amount of black on his body seems to be increasing. Should I assume this is from the continued healing of ammonia burns he suffered from being kept in the little fish bowl? Goldfish don’t generally gain black pigmentation, right? I’ve mostly heard of black fish losing their black pigmentation as they’ve gotten older.

 

The picture of him in the little fish bowl was taken the day I got him.

Wow he's looking rough... Hope he pulled through. Those look like some pretty serious injuries.
