    My Goldie that I've had for almost a year has an red and white sore on his wen, I have never had this happen so wondering how to treat it looks kinda like a nasty pimple or something. He doesn't seem bothered by it but help please;-;

    What are your parameters and what are you testing with? What size tank? And is your goldie the only fish in the tank?

    My parameters are 0 ammonia 0 nitrite and 10 ppm nitrate and I'm using the Api testing kit it's a 40 gallon but I have three goldfish but one is quite small (I'm not keeping him).

    You won't be able to keep any of them in that tank as they grow, just so you know, unless you plan to upgrade tank or move them into a pond (like a koi pond) but there's nothing wrong with keeping them while they're still small, as long as you take good care of them. Just be prepared for their future growth!
