It is possible to have a tooth turn dark because there was no permanent tooth underneath. Mine was a baby tooth and all I was ever told by any dentist was, "You have a baby tooth, with no tooth under it, so I'd recommend leaving it alone unless it gives you problems." It remained and was a healthy tooth until my mid forties. At that time several teeth weakened but I was told that was due to chemotherapy and heavy medications, so the discolored or dark tooth may have lasted longer without the other complications.

What would happen to goldfish left in dark?

A goldfish left in the dark would gradually, over time, turn completely white. This is because the color pigmentation cells responsible for the fish's bright color, cannot work without sunlight. It would, however, take a very long time for a goldfish to lose 100% of its color because they have so many color pigmentation cells in their scales.
