@Uhwaz
Not sure on what is wrong. I'm not good w/diagnosing diseases so I'll leave this for someone else.
Whatever it is it doesn't look too serious, yet. Hope someone can help.
Nice looking pond you have there :)

hi @Uhwaz that looks like carp pox to me, theres not a lot you can do about it and as the weather warms up it should disappear. where are you located ? if its the uk the water will still be cold, give it some time and just keep an eye on it, i have 2 fish that get it every year but it goes as it gets warmer. beautiful pond you have. hope this helps cheers mark.

I agree the bump on the tail appears to be carp pox. I'm not sure what is wrong with it's eye, but I'd keep a close eye on it.

Eye is there but with bit of white but the eye is moving and he can see through it I think as he reacts with right side to the glass too.
While I was waiting for good shot noticed my 8yrs old gold fish has few white spots on her head :( (hard to see more then two in pic the red colour washes out the small spots ) suspect that's Ick ?
3rd pic is just to show inside of pond :)

Thanks for clarifying the eye issue. I'm no help there, sorry.

Those white spots are the wrong shape and size for ich. They may be normal color change. Hard to tell at this point.

Love the underwater pic. Beautiful!

hi @Uhwaz, has it just appeared or has it always been like this ? it could be just the colour of the fish, the little white spots could indicate that its a male and getting ready for fishy loving :p also i can see food in there unless your heating the pond it might still be a little cold for food, i normally wait till temp is 10 degrees or above or if i do feed its literally 1-2 pellets of wheatgerm based food. hope this helps cheers mark.

Hi
@yorkshire pudding I usually wait for the temp to go to 10C for a week
however this year the fish become quite active in last few days and the water was between 7-9C (mostly 9) so i start to introduce bit of food every second day i use the below wheatgerm sticks until water goes over 12C
I used it as bait to get her so i can look :)
I remove any uneaten food after 5mins

That's the best I could get sorry for the long break whole family down with COVID so fish had to wait :)
Maybe it's nothing and I am just overreacting after seeing the koi with carp pox

Thx again

Bummer on getting Covid! Your fish does not look bad to me in the photo. I'd just keep an eye on it and see if it gets worse. Not sure much on diseases so can't really help much.
