When goldfish become overheated, the scales lift in an attempt to cool the body. If tank or pond temps are in the comfort zone 65f to 72f, your fish may have infection. Just like humans, and other animals, high temperatures are often the result of infection in goldfish

Goldfish are coldblooded fish, and their body temperature is that of their environment. They can stand temperatures above freezing up to 74f without experiencing discomfort, however, they cannot tolerate high temperatures
