Thumbs down Could this be velvet?

Hey guys. I just got my new fish today and I decided to do a large photoshoot. I noticed in some of his pictures he has a goldish tint to him. Do you think this could be velvet or it's just his coloring? If so, what can I give him to get rid of it? Also, should I give him medicine just to be on the safe side in case it is?

Looks like his natural colouring.

Velvet is very recognisable once you see it. It's like the fish has been coated in dust rather than just having a goldish tint.

Velvet also presents with other symptoms such as clamping, heavy breathing (it attacks the gill tissue), flashing and lack of appetite.
