how many times will goldfish spawn in a season?!

Recommended Posts

Just woke up and found Steve chassing Allen (Alana) around the tank again and more eggs.

Quickly removed plants (silk) and dropped in spawning mops.

This is their fifth spawn now.....

Ive ran out of room now so the mops will end up in a 20L bucket lol.

Hoping to move batch #1 soon

Then in few weeks batch# 2 (4th spawn)

Dont know if ill get any from this one as she is super intent on eating all the eggs.

How many times? As many as they want, basically. A long while back, I had a pair that Just. Wouldn't. Quit. I nicknamed the male "Viagra."

Lol Im not planning on keeping them all.

Atm now im atempting to work out ways of raising them easier.

Ie experimenting.

What foods, what filter. Heater vs no heater eyc etc.

So this batch is going without a heater in a bucket lol

This first spring after spawning is usually the most successful breeding year. After that the number of round tend to taper off. :)

Wow is that normal ??? Since the 18 of august my fantails( only the 2 of them) have laid eggs 3 times..is that in the norm?

And I've been trying to get pregnant for 3 years? I'm jealous of my fish :)

Well, it's a trade off. Would you like to have a couple thousand children all at once? :rofl

It is normal for them to lay eggs multiple times.

I hope you will have your next child soon! :)

Hi Alex

I've been wondering this myself. I got my comets November will be two years ago from a fair.

The smallest is obviously the male as I see pronounced tubercles on him. I believe the other three are female.

I see the male chasing the others all the time and sometimes seem they all join in chasing each other, but I've never seen them spawn. Never seen eggs etc.

I've even watched during the chasing to see if I see a release if eggs.

At what age do comets spawn? Should they have already? Do parameters, lighting, temp have any role?

I don't want to raise fry, but know it's unhealthy to not release eggs.

If my ratio is three female to one males, would that reduce spawning?

Thanks

Jeff

Thanks Alex, I hope so too...but if you look at my age, the chances are I will get my menopause first :)

1000 ummm let me think...ok no

I've tried to keep 7 eggs each time (talking of my fishes now)..they live for a week or two than in one day they die and you can see through them. I've seen demitrius with them and in my tank, the cause of death? ...sad. Wouldn't mind having one of their babies.

I don't get it, wash 80% minimum once or twice a week.

AnywAy wrong place to post..

Jeff,

They should be at spawning age by now, since I think you can reliably expect them to be laying eggs by 2 years. Some even sooner.

I think one male to three females is actually a very good ratio, although you should know that even without males, the female goldfish will still lay eggs. This might become an issue with older fish with impacted eggs, but I think this is much less likely in more streamlined (read all the single tails and long bodied ones) goldfish.

Also, just because they are of spawning age doesn't mean that they will. A big inducer of things is the change in the water temp. If you have managed to keep temps completely stable, I wouldn't be surprised that you don't see any, which is not a bad thing. :)

Thenath, perhaps you could start a thread next time?

From what ive read its best to have 2-3 males per female for spawning.

If its otherway around the male looses interest in one and chases the other and so on never actually getting the 'job' done.

Where's if more males they all chase the female and if one gives upthe other takes over.

Although this can also lead to exhaustion with the female so you have to be careful

One male and one female is a good mix.

With that combo your 100% sure of the parents.

Also its meant to be best to spawn in a smaller tank. (Less chasing)

But all this ^^^ is something im still trying. Its just what ive read and heard. Not gospel.
