How can you tell a female goldfish to a male goldfish?

You need goldfish that are at least 2 years old (That's when they are old enough to mate). You can tell most easily when it is spring, and the male goldfish have small dots on their fins. They mate in the summer. Also, female goldfish tend have more livid colors than the male goldfish. This is not true for all fish. If there happens to be a male and female goldfish in the same tank, the male chases the female regularly and appears to attack it.

There is very little sexual dimorphism between male and female goldfish. Male goldfish are generally more slender, because they lack ovaries. Female goldfish may have swollen abdomens. Unless you are a professional, it is not advised to breed goldfish at home, because they cannot lay their eggs due to selective breeding. The eggs must be squeezed out of the female, when they are ready.

No. The only way to tell the difference between male and female goldfish visually is to observe them when they are in breeding season/condition. At this time the male fish develop white spots on their gill plates and pectoral fins. The females simply get more chubby as they fill up with ova (eggs)
