How old are my goldfish?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

I'm a newbie here and was just wondering if there is anyway possible to tell the age of my goldfish..

 

I have one Shubunkin and 2 comet goldfish all of which are about 2.5-3 inches long..

 

Was just wondering if there was anyway to tell age by the size of a goldfish.

 

Thanks!

Is that the standard length (tail fin not included) or the total length (nose to end of tail fin)?

How long have you had these, how big were they when you got them, and where did you get them?

This is total length.. most to the end of tail fin.

They were this size when I got them.

I only purchased them 10 days ago at a local fishkeeping store.

Thanks

You might ask how old they are at the store.  

Could you give the standard length please?

Hard to tell age by size. One of my smallest fish is the one I had the longest.

I could but I rarely go to the store I bought them in, that's the only thing! Standard size without the tail fin would be 1.9-2.1" long if that's any help to find out?

Thanks for all the help guys

I'd guess about 4 months old.  Follow our guidelines and your fish should grow rapidly.
