    Someone gave my a tiny, orange Ranchu not long after I first set up my pond.
    It's been about a year, and this guy is now pure white with a gold circle on his head. It used to be a white spot.
    Is this normal for such a fish?
    I've had color changing Cichlids. But have not seen it in goldfish.

    My goldfish start out as black babies and then gradually turn to orange and some turn white too. Happens a lot. I happen to like the white ones.

    15374914871335866106836535974680.jpg Sounds exactly like mine was orange and white then orange spot on head now all white and my favorite. Also one of only 10 I could catch seems the rest will be under ice very soon.

    With the attention I've recently paid to the pond, the water is clear enough for photos of the Ranchu
