How do I tell if my goldfish is male or female?

Answer

The most commonly used way to tell the sex of a gold fish involves waiting for the spawning season. During this period, females become heavier and may appear lopsided, while males develop rough white flecks over their gills and the front of their pectoral fins. Another way to tell the sex of a goldfish is to use the vent shapes. Male goldfish have a shallow, recessed vent, while females have vents that stand out slightly from their bodies.
