Comets will change color with changes in age, nutrition, or sunlight. In my experience, they start off darker and become brighter with age.

Dark color in goldfish almost never stay ... My black moor is now almost totally gold/red. (And he is only 9 months old .... moors usu. keep their black color for years they gradually turn brown.)

Black is generally a juvenile color, & the gold will show through as it grows. In show fish, blacks in an adult is prized (& will fetch a high price).
