      What caused this?

      ***Disclaimer***
      Not my fish. But I have permission from the owner to post their pictures to try and find out what this is.

      On Monday the owner posted these pictures of this goldfish.

      The tank temp is 77f and this was after two water changes in a three day period. One 50% and the other 80%.
      Stock is 3 fancy goldfish in a 60g tank with a hang on the back filter. 1 - 2 water changes a week.

      Next day. Tuesday

      Looking way better, with just a little red at the base of the tail on both sides.

      Any clue what this is? No other fish in the tank are affected.

      By the looks, not a clue. With the water changes and the improvement, it very well could have been a water quality issue, but it could also be a viral issue, in which case it could come back.

      I was thinking viral, but this is the first time this happened. No new fish added. And this fish is 8yrs old I believe.

      Now as for water quality, he did say the filter hadn’t been cleaned in 6 months. The water was still flowing fine so he just let it keep going.
