How do baby goldfish grow?
if they are being tended to they will need to eat ground up food that's made for there size,At four months they no longer need to eat that kind of food and require regular fish food.

Goldfish are egg laying fish, and unless there is a male in the tank to chase the female and convince her to release eggs, you may not know that she is either female, or even has eggs to release.
It depends on how big your tank is.. The bigger the fishtank, the bigger the fish will grow. . Not only does it matter how big your tank/pond is but it also depends greatly on what the fish is fed, the variety of the fish, and the fishes genetics. Many goldfish can grow over a foot long- here is a… list of standard sizes to expect a goldfish to grow: . pond goldfish like comets, shubunkins, and wakins can grow well over 12inches . fancier varieties like ranchus,lionhead,and orandas can grow over 10 inches . other fancy varieties like ryukins,black moors, fantails, etc. can grow over 6-7 inches . The largest goldfish recorded is over 16 inches . By feeding your goldfish a varied diet, giving them plenty of room to grow, and by buying goldfish from only a healthy stock you can ensure that your goldfish will grow to a healthy and favorable size. Most goldfish will make around a 10 inch fish if it is reasonably housed and looked after. if the envorment allow it they only grow as big there envorment alows Goldfish may grow to a maximum length of 23 inches (59 cm) and a maximum weight of 9.9 pounds (4.5 kg), although this is rare; most individual goldfish grow to under half this size. In optimal conditions, goldfish may live more than 40 years  ; however, most household goldfish generally only live six to eight years. Common Goldfish can reach a size over a foot, depending on the size of the aquarium. (MORE)
Of course, all animals have babies. This is because reproduction is the only way to keep a species from becoming extinct. Since all living things eventually die, reproduction ensures that there will be a next generation to that species. Edit: In addition, goldfish lay eggs, which then hatch. The …only type of fish that give birth to live young are Livebearers. If there is both a male and a female and they are in breeding state it is possible. (MORE)
Answer . Females will start to look rounder, and as they deposit their eggs around the tank, the males will chase them.
Goldfish can get VERY big. Actually, they naturally never stopgrowing. They can even get up to 3 feet. You may find this hard tobelieve, but this is because most goldfish's growths are stuntedbecause of small tanks. Sometimes they adapt to the tank size andonly grow if put in a bigger tank but this …is rare. If a goldfishis given a healthy, natural life, they will continue to live andgrow. The record for oldest fish is about 49 years. The person above me is very right. Goldfish usually don't reachtheir full length because they die (cuz of small tanks, overfeeding, and any other abuse) before they can. They never stopgrowing but their growing starts to slow down after a while. That'swhy it's 20 gallons for one goldfish and another 10 gallons foradditional goldfish (3 large fancy goldfish in a 50 gal). The two people above me are partially right. There is no record ofany goldfish reaching 3 feet, only koi can attain a length thatbig. Goldfish are also capable of growing to their adult size (12 -14 inches) in a 10 gallon tank as long as you keep the tank clean,warm and you put the goldfish on a varied diet. Although, sincegoldfish can grow big and produce a lot of waste, it is best thatyou move them to a bigger tank once they grow-out their old one. According to experts, an ordinary or common goldfish will grow upto 26 inches while koi carps will grow and weigh up to 90 lbs. REALLY REALLY BIG, of course depending on the tank size, if put ina big tank they can reach the size of a koi They can live to the age of 45 if in clean conditions. They can getas large as 10'', but if they have descendants of a large fish suchas a koi it can grow as large as a koi. The goldfish also growswith the tank as you give it bigger ones. I have a comet goldfishwho is half that has lots of koi in him and a little bit ofgoldfish,he is 2 years old. It will grow to the size of the tank you might have you see the big gold fish in the shop what r about 5-7 ich long (MORE)
they will continue to grow as big as their aquarium/pond allows. Ihave some that are around 8-9 inches long. That being said theirorgans constantly grow. So even though they are stunted in a tanktheir organs will expand stressing and potentially killing thefish.
The female scatters adhesive eggs into the vegetation in their pond and the males scatter their sperm over the eggs. The resultant fertilised eggs develop into fry which, if they survive, will eventually become adult goldfish.
Goldfish lay eggs. These eggs attach to objects in the tank orpond, like leaves. They stay there until the goldfish fry hatch.
It depends on the fish. Some are bigger than others. Everyday it grows a little.. Mabe even a centimeter. But you dont realize it. Be patient.
\n Goldfish are not a tropical fish. In addition, they are egg bearing rather than live birth.
Yes, goldfish young must always be separated yes dad gold fish or other fish eat eggs or other fish hope this helps you
Goldfish babies look like tiny little transparent fish with blackeyes. They are not born gold. The gold color starts to develop, asthey age.
They can yes, you'd better do some resurch if you have them or plan on having some.
Up until about 2 months they are usually see through! After that, they are a dark brownish color. When they grow to maturity, they grow in orange scales.
Yes, babies are hatched a dull color, but will become beautiffully gold once they grow up!. Yes, babies are hatched a dull color, but will become beautiffully gold once they grow up!
Yes, size doesn't matter. Golfish are at least 2 years old when they have there first bunch of eggs
to eat it. the reason? I do no know Edit: Possibly in order to defend themselves. Normally it's the other way around. If the fry are small enough, goldfish will eat them. Either that, or the babies are naturally aggressive towards the bigger goldfish.
ok you have to get fish flakes and you have to make it really small and if you dont have fish flakes then get a cucumber and slice just one piece and slice that piece in to bits
If only the tail (Caudal) fin is damaged it can grow back. If the flesh part where the fin actually starts (Caudal peduncle) is damaged then it may well not grow back.
They can breed as young as 12 months . If they have been well looked after a Goldfish could spawn at 1 year old.
Goldfish grow based on the available room and the food supply though the biggest one I ever had maxed out at about ten inches from nose to tail.. They can grow considerably larger than 10 inches even double that. Goldfish do not magically limit the size to which they grow. People who think that are… ignorant of the facts. Goldfish are like most other creatures in that, if they are treated badly by being kept in cramped quarters (lack of exercise) have a lack of water changes and are fed insufficient food they will be runted by their bad living conditions and not reach a good mature size. (MORE)
Yes, the rate at which a goldfish grows, and its overall size, is often partially determined by its environment. This is why pond goldfish are considerably larger than aquarium goldfish, and why goldfish that are cramped-up in bowls stay relatively small. If you want your goldfish to grow into large… healthy fish you'll buy them a large aquarium or pond to live in. (MORE)
feed it andd put it in the rihght water temperature ang clean the tank ever month feed it twice a day but just a pinch of food.
The female will push out many eggs and the male will swim between the tail and catch theeggs to fetalise them. when fish lay eggs its best to have plants for the eggs to hang on to
Pregnancy is not involved with the reproduction of goldfish, therefore there is no possible way for a goldfish be filled with [possibly] dead babies. Fertilization of a goldfish's eggs occurs outside of the fish's body, and any further development takes place there too.There is a condition in which …a female goldfish may get an egg impaction if she does not release her eggs, in this case handspawning the fish(carefully squeezing the fish's abdomen to release the eggs) will eliminate the risk caused by the eggs. (MORE)
Approximately 2 inches in length by the time the fish is 4 months old, however the growing rate greatly slows after this period (although the fish will continue to grow until about three years of age) and every goldfish is different so there is no way to know exactly how fast a particular fry will g…row. (MORE)
No it will not. It will be runted by the lack of room. In order for goldfish to grow to full size they should be housed in ponds or very large aquaria.
In the wild they eat tiny (microscopic) creatures and algaes. As they get larger they eat larger creatures and algaes. Specially designed foods are available in the better pet shops to feed fish fry. they eat gold fish food need to make the flacks small enough for them but be sure they are not to sm…all if the food sinks to the bottom it will create pneaumonia. (MORE)
In nature there are many kinds of tiny macropods, microscopic algaes and other things in the water when goldfish breed in spring under normal/wild conditions. These 'baby goldfish foods' can be purchased at most good pet shops
A Goldfish will grow quicker if you increase its metabolism slightly. This can be done by keeping the water at summer temperatures of around 65F to 70F. Goldfish kept at this higher temp will also need added space (2 gals per inch of fish), air bubbles and a really good filtration system. Their food… intake will also need to be increased and the inclusion of live food such as earthworms several times weekly would also be advised. (MORE)
Yes. Given good water conditions and proper food the scales will grow back but there may never be as good as the old scales/markings.
I am not aware of goldfish stopping growing at any specific age. They can get very large (over 24 inches) in the twenty or so years I have known them to live.
Goldfish grow constantly until they die. As far as length of the fish is concerned they commonly grow to 10 or 12 inches but have been known to grow much larger than that. (around 24 inches) .
Goldfish will grow very large and commonly grow to 24" and live for over 20 years.
If you provide good, clean water and enough of it, the fishes tail will grow back. There would have to be a reason for the fish to loose its tail. The most common reason is fin rot (fungus) this is caused by filthy/putrid water. To avoid this happening, there are a few basic fish keeping rules. They… are "1 inch of fish needs a minimum of 1 gallon of water. Every fish tank needs a properly cycled filter and every fish tank should have 50% of its water replaced weekly. Follow these rules and your fish will grow back its tail fin and do well. (MORE)
Goldfish are egg scatterers. They will normally eat most of the eggs if the adult fish are not removed from the spawing area/tank/pond. The few ova that are not eaten may develop into fry which also may be eaten. Whatever fish survive can be sold or kept depending on the amount of room available, re…membering that one goldfish needs at least 10 gallons all to itself. (MORE)
You are killing your goldfish by neglect. Your fishes water must literally stink. It is putrid and needs replacing. The fish has fungus caused by Ammonia in the water, and that is eating away at its flesh. Please do a water change ASAP and medicate the water by adding 1 level teaspoon of sea salt pe…r gallon of water. Then follow the rules below. 1 inch of fish needs at least 1 gallon of water. (A goldfish will be a 10 inch fish and so needs at least 10 gallons.). :- Every tank must have a permanently running 'cycled' filter. :- Every tank needs at least 50% of its water replaced every week.. If you do as I have suggested, you may save the fishes life. Once the fungus goes and the fish starts to get better, you can stopp adding salt to the replacement water,and the water will slowly become fresh water again. I can guarantee that failure to follow the above simple rules will always result in sick and dying fish. (MORE)
\nThink about this for a minute.. goldfish do not appear out of no where and they aren't artificially created. How else do they appear? Well they breed to produce eggs where goldfish fry (babies) come from.
Comets can get all the way up to about 22" under the right circumstances. It is much more likely an average comet will only grow to 12".
depending on how big the tank of pond is. if it is a larger decent sized one then they grow quite fast but if it is small they usually grow allot slower and don't get to big
well commomn and commet goldfish grow really fast in months but fancy fish do not grow as much but keep in mind they still do!
Comets can get all the way up to about 22" under the right circumstances. It is much more likely an average comet will only grow to 12".
When they mate a few days after they will eggs. They tend to do this when it is about 70 degrees in the tank as it simulates spring when they would lay eggs in the wild.
Feed all of the baby fishes, and be prepared for some baby fish to die...
Your goldfish will eat a lot more. You would see lots of small white eggs sticking to the aquarium walls and fixtures. The ones that survive hatch into tiny frys. Eggs should be removed as soon as possible because the parent goldfish usually eat them up.
It is more than likely ammonia burn. This occurs by you're ammonia and nitrates being too high, you should probably get a water test kit from you're local pet store!
Yes it depends on if it is the top fin then no it could die but if it is one of the bottom fins then it could grow back but it could take a while though.
It depends based on how mature the male fish is but usually it takes about 1 week.
Yes. If your goldfish lay eggs, and some hatch, have a spare tank and carefully put their young in there so it wouldn't be eaten. But make sure the water is in room temperature.
Unless you remove the eggs from the main tank, or the fry have numerous hiding places that prevent the adults from eating them, the eggs are typically a meal long before a baby goldfish ever forms or hatches.
