How can you tell how old your goldfish is?
Asked in Freshwater Aquariums, Goldfish
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.
