If there are males and females present in the same tank and the female is full of eggs, the male will chase her and poke his head against her side & belly to convince her to release eggs. If she does release eggs, he will release what is called milt to attempt to fertilize the eggs.
Goldfish are egg layers and spawn during springtime. One spawning can produce several thousand fry.
A goldfish reproduce sexually. In order for goldfish to reproduce, their must be DNA provided by both a male and female goldfish. A goldfish is just to complex to be able to reproduce as simply as dividing itself in half.
Female goldfish have ovaries to produce eggs, and reproduce externally. Male goldfish have internal testes, and they also reproduce externally.
yes goldfish lay eggs to reproduce
Of course! Goldfish reproduce sexually not asexually
No, a guppy is a livebearing fish, and a goldfish is egg laying.
No, goldfish reproduce using external fertilization; goldfish are never pregnant.
Goldfish reproduce using external fertilization so pregnancy in a goldfish is impossible.
Yes. Laying eggs is how they reproduce.
No they will not i hace 6 goldfish and 3 koi and ive had them forever but they will reproduce toether
Goldfish use external fertilization to reproduce so pregnancy in a goldfish is impossible.
No. Goldfish reproduce by having the female lay the eggs on plants at the bottom of the tank, and then the male releasing his sperm over them.
In a word, no. It would be like mating a hummingbird with a wombat...
The main difference between male and female goldfish is that male goldfish cannot reproduce. This is because, anatomically, females are the only gender that can carry eggs.
They spawn in amongst the plant life at the surface of their pond/aquarium etc.
No, goldfish rely on external fertilization to reproduce so there is no possible way they could get pregnant thus eliminating the need to give birth.
Goldfish reproduce via external fertilization so they never are pregnant.
Goldfish can be spawned at any time of the year simply by controlling their lighting, food and water temperatures. This involves study and knowhow.
Iff you mean by "how do goldfish mate with other fish" you mean "how do goldfish mate with other goldfish" Goldfish are egg-layers, meaning they reproduce by laying eggs. During breeding season male goldfish will develop white spots on their fins and gill covers called "tubercles". Female goldfish will become heavier in appearance as they become full of eggs. When goldfish decide to reproduce the female will release her eggs. The eggs will stick to anything in the aquarium (plants, ornaments, etc). After the eggs are released the male will fertilize the eggs by releasing a substance called milt (sperm) which will make the water cloudy. If no further action is taken by the owner the parents will proceed by eating the eggs.
Spring time is the breeding season for goldfish. During this time female goldfish will put on weight, and male goldfish will develop breeding tubercles (white dots on the head and gills). Goldfish may chase each other around the habitat in an effort to find a mate. When a male and female goldfish choose a mate the female will release her eggs onto the breeding ground (such as an aquatic plant, or breeding mop). The male goldfish will then release a cloud of Milt (sperm). The milt thus fertilizes the eggs, and goldfish fry begin to form within the eggs. The goldfish eggs will continue to develop for several days until they eventually hatch into fry. The fry will then grow into fully developed goldfish overtime. These goldfish will eventually reproduce, and thus continue the life cycle.
Comets are only long tailed goldfish and they reproduce in exactly the same way as all other goldfish. The female will produce many thousands of ova (eggs) depending on her size and how well she has been housed and fed.
The amount of time it takes a goldfish can greatly vary. Most goldfish are full grown at the age of 2-3 years however they cannot reproduce until about the age of 3. For others, they are not fully grown until three years of age but can reproduce at only 1 year of age. You can generally expect your fish to completely grown and sexually mature at 3 years of age.
Not very likely. Goldfish actually make very poor fish bowl occupants as they produce large amounts of ammonia and grow to be quite large in size. In which case most types of goldfish need to reach a larger size to be sexually mature enough to breed.
Goldfish may only grow to sexual maturity with enough water and the right nutrition. Most goldfish breed in captivity, particularly in pond settings. Breeding usually happens after a significant temperature change, often in spring. Males chase females, prompting them to release their eggs by bumping and nudging them.
Some common breeds of goldfish are: the Black Moor goldfish, the Ryunkin goldfish, the comet goldfish, the common goldfish, the Calico Fantail goldfish, the telescope eye goldfish, the bubble eye goldfish, the pearl scale goldfish and the Oranda goldfish.
