I just found my goldfish missing a scale. Should I be concerned? He seems otherwise okay. This has only happened maybe twice in his life, so I don't remember what happened last time.
I did a water change and added salt to prevent infection.

Do goldfish lose scales for any other reason than accidentally ripping them off?

I wouldn’t be concerned. He probably just bumped something and a scale fell off :)

This guy is my oldest and most favorite fish, so of course I'm gonna be overly-concerned about him.:happy: He is a big goof, so I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often.

At least I now have a cool giant scale to add to my collection.
