Is it a baby, or a young fish? Because young fish sometimes contract an infection. I'm not sure what it is called but it can give them black patches all over their scales and could also make dark circles around their eyes and gills. If not treated they are almost garunteed to die. Go to your local pet store and explain your situation. They will be able to tell you more and reccommend a water treatment.

I currently have a fish in the same situation but he has been isolated and treated and I can tell he's gradually getting better. Even with treatment there is no garuntee on their survival.

Hope this helps.
