Default Goldfish Losing its Color?

Ive had this gold fishautolinker.com autolinking image for about 6-7 months, he/she seems happy and healthy, (if someone could tell me the sex of it id appreciate it, and the type too, i dont know what it is i just call it a gold fishautolinker.com autolinking image). I got him from somebody who had em for about 4 years i think, when i got him/her he was about half white and half orange, now hes about 90% white. is this just from old age? how long do they typically live for? thanks

Hey, I don't know much on the types of goldfishautolinker.com autolinking image (still something I need to learn) but I do know some on breeding and telling sex. The males, when in breeding condition, will have white pimple-like bumps, called tubercles, on the gill plates and along the pectoral fins. These may help to arouse the female to get her to lay eggs so he can fertilize them. The females get more plump when they are in breeding condition. As for the color change, I had a goldfishautolinker.com autolinking image a while ago and (s)he changed color the same way. Mine changed color after we moved him to my bedroom. I later learned they adjust their color to the amount and type of light they receive but I don't know if it's reversible. Also, they can live for 20+ years if properly cared for. I hope this answers your questions! If you have anyy more just fell free to ask and I or someone else will answer.

If your goldie spends a lot of time in the dark, that will cause it to fade. Don't worry, this has little to no ill affect on the fish. I'm pretty sure this isn't permanent unless the moon is aligned with Jupiter at the same time as 500 pillowcases are burnt and you drop a can of tomato juice into Hudson Bay.

Also, Wikipedia tells me that they'll live indefinatly if 'Fed a varied diet, and housed in exeptional water conditions'. Around 10-20 years is more likely, depending on type. Common goldies live longer than the fancy types. You can tell the difference easily, as fancy goldfishautolinker.com autolinking image usually have double, fan-like tail fins, and more egg-shaped bodies. I can't see the video, could you put up a description?

It's not losing its color, it is just a normal color change, what every goldfishautolinker.com autolinking image goes through there life time.

Koi and goldfishautolinker.com autolinking image go through these changes and nobody, as far as I know, have any idea why they do this.
I have heard of people purchasing Tancho Kohaku (white bodied Koi with a red mark on their heads. People are charged horendous prices for these beautiful fish only to find out that either through stress or growth, the fish turns all white.
