Fish's tail have red lines...
In my goldfish's tails from today I am observing red lines ( as blood veins ) , whats this , are my fishes ill ? or its due to any impurity presence in water ? kindly guide me what measures I have to take and is this serious problem ?

Unless your fish have been fighting, prominent blood vessels in the tail are caused by water quality issues. A few weeks of clean water and they should heal.

How often do you change your tank water and how much at a time?46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
5 gal QT
Remember: Our job is to take care of the water our fish live in

I use to change 100% water every week .........I put borewell water ( under ground water ) , I have goldfish ( 4) , pearl scale gold fish 4 , 1 common loach ( its not purchased bt saved as it was fallen from a fish trader's tank ) , 2 common plecos .Tank is artficially planted bt going to put natural plants shortly. Because the water used is from under ground water so i don't check the water quality ( assumed that ground water is free of chlorine and other chemicals). I have 15 gallon tank ut going to change it in a 30 gallon shortly. My fishes are with me from 2 yrs back and they dont had any problem yet.
