How Can You Tell If Your Goldfish...

Recommended Posts

It's rather difficult to be sure what gender your fish is. I know of two ways to tell... breeding behavior ( males have tubercles) or examining your the anal fin of your fish... but with the latter nothing is 100%. Someone may be able to explain it to you, I'm not going to try because I don't think I can well enough for you to understand what I'm talking about.. haha.

I'm not sure about anal fins, but you an tell the sex of a goldfish fairly well by looking at the leading rays on its pectoral fins; males have a much thicker leading ray (front edge) than females. However, every time I go up to the glass to look, mine all go into a silly fin-waving dance at me, so it's hard to tell! :D
