Those sound like Rosy Red Minnows aka Fathead Minnows. Can be pond fish. They can get a really peachy pink color, brown grey pretty much stay that way. They get odd thing called breeding bumps so you know. It freaked me out when I had them and didn't know!!!

No it is an odd thing that happens and they just get them mainly on /around their heads.

edit: someone said the tubercles are the reason they are called Fat Heads.

The link below is for an ancient thread 2011, and you shouldn't post on it but you can look at the pics and see some of the bumps on the golden fish especially.
