      White spots on wen - Oranda goldfish in pond

      Hi All!

      I am brand new to this forum and have a question about these white spots that just showed up on my orange Oranda goldfish in my pond. I have had a pond for about a year now, it is 450 gallons and I started with two Oranda goldfish and they are now about 6-7". I bought two more Orandas last Friday, but they are chocolate/bronze color and very hard to see in the pond! Anyway, I just now noticed that my orange Oranda has white spots on his head, which I never noticed him having before. Then I noticed that the two new Orandas also have small white spots/pimples, and they didn't have those when I bought them. So, I am wondering if I introduced the new Orandas to something in my pond, or the other way around, the new Orandas have something (ich, bacteria, fungus) and gave it to my orange Oranda. The orange and white Oranda is fine, no white spots. Here is a picture of my orange one, the white spots I am concerned about are only on the wen. Please let me know what you guys think this might be. Thanks!

      Pond size: 450 gallons
      Fish: 4 (two 6-7", two 1.5-2")
      Turtles: 2 (5")
      Water changes: weekly
      pH: 7.0
      Nitrates: 0.0
      Ammonia: 0.0
      Phosphates: 2.0

      I’m happy I came across this. I just noticed my oranda has a couple spots just like this.

      Thanks to everyone who replied, I feel so much better now! I had heard that Orandas get white spots when the wen is growing but I didn't know they looked like this! Thanks for setting my mind at ease, I thought I had some sort of outbreak on my hands!
