Due to the flash its hard to tell, but the small golden spots dont look like its natural to him. If you could post a better picture of it I could say for sure.

Looks like velvet to me, especially with the way it shows up on his dorsal....

I have nothing to treat him with... nor do i have money.

I got a Dragonscale, and he must also have it. I though he was just metallic looking but he's gold too.

I suck at this :/

I'd run this by Sakura8, she's dealt with velvet before.

I BELIEVE that aquarium salt can be used as a treatment, along with higher temps. Kosher salt can be used in place of aq salt, as well as ice cream salt.

You should be able to get your hands on one of those fairly cheaply. Even at walmart if not the pet store.

You want this http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...Fish+Saltwater
or this one is available in smaller sizes, and dissolves quicker http://ca-en.hagen.com/Aquatic/Water...plements/A1091
