Is it normal for a goldfish to have different color eyes?

I think this I sort of a stupid question to ask but I have a calico ryukin goldfish with different color eyes. Is that uncommon? One eye is normal color while the other eye is red. He is healthy and eating so I'm pretty sure it's not a disease. I just got him 5 days ago so not 100% sure if his eyes looked liked that permanently but he seems perfectly healthy. Sorry for the bad quality pictures.

I have a pearlscale almost exact same coloring and pattern and it had one black eye and a different color eye but after a few weeks both of them turned black.

Normal! As your fish ages, they will change color as she does.

Good I just was curious if it was like a rare mutation or a disease. Thanks
