Black Moore white patches new tank?
Hi I brought a black Moore 3 weeks ago and he has got white patches on him and he has had it for about a week. I have one fantail goldfish in the tank and that’s it. I know online it says this can be due to a new tank. My tank is new but the tank was running for 2 weeks before I put fish in as this is what it said in the instructions. Does anyone know what to do?
Thank you x

You should have fishless cyled the tank before adding fish. That takes 4-8 weeks and only starts when you add a sorce of ammonia such as fish food, dirty sponge from an active fish tank, pure ammonia in a jar, grocery store shrimp in a nylon stocking...
I cant tell you what the white patches could be without a picture. Goldfish may change color after moving to a diffent tank. and with age. Or the fish may have ich or velvet. so you need to look up pictures of fish diseases. And Or post pictures.
