Goldfish red blotches

Hey
I just noticed some darkish patches on my goldfish. In a stable 160 litre tank. Ammonia 0 Nitrite 0. Regular weekly water changes. Is it just pigmentation or disease? The fish is active, responsive, feeding etc..pics attached

So grateful for your opinions!

Red is usually caused by ammonia or nitrites being too high. However if those are both 0 and he's acting normal then it may just be him changing his colours on you.
What are your nitrates?
