This is my first ever tropical fish, I did research before I bought anything but turns out what I read wast 100% accurate.
Anyway since I got him he has had this brown coloring on his back, panicking I thought it might be velvet (it isnt) I have no clue what it is so decided it must be normal, then I began to notice he has like a gold/silver patch under what can only be called his chin! not flaky bits (like velvet) but his actual scales and one of his little swim fins has started to turn a bit gold/silver too!?
I'm also concerned because his face has what looks like green blotches on it? Im worried it could be some kind of fungal infection?
He's pink/purple/orange depending what light you look in with of course the brown bit on his back. When I found this site I noticed that the red fish on the "Register at bettafish.com" ad had the same 'green' face blotches - I took a screenshot because I'm guessing none of you have seen it in a while! I have also added a pic of my Sam sorry for the quality of the pic, I couldn't get a better one!!
Please could you help put my mind at ease? Or diagnose Sam?
Thank you!!! x
