Hello fellow Fishlorians!

One of my Goldie’s got sucked into my filter and got badly injured. I can’t get a good pic(sun glare) so I’ll get one out tonight.

So almost all of the new growth is brown with hints of purple. It is all of the new growth like the fins and parts of the body. Could it be anything bad?

Info:
Parameters are 0 0 20
Temp is at 68
125 gallons
2 canisters: eHeim 2217 and a 5 gallon bucket filter with a pump for 75 liters a minute.

A darling! Yes brownish with tinges of purple are normal. I always hoped the purple would stay but it never did. Glad your baby is healing. Accidents like that can cause so much trauma. To you and the fish. Keep a close eye on it. When did it happen?

It happened about a week ago.

Sounds like it’s healing well. No trouble swimming eating pooing? Perky and happy?
There isn't any trouble with any of those, but my goldie starts to dart around a lot more when he sees people.

When he first darted a week ago, he lost a large chunk of his fin but it has regrown already.

I’m surprised at how much a goldfish can take. My pond flooded just last week. I’m out catching gf to put back in the pond. I stepped on one. All juvies mind you, older ones have some sense. They lay low. I’ve got this one I stepped on in qt. Other than being mad at being confined, she seems fine. I’m giving her until Saturday. If she’s still swimming right and eating, back to the pond she goes.

So he’s got a little of the freak out on you. Go slow around the tank for a while. Give him time to settle. That’s a lot of stress. Is it a planted tank?
