How long is a goldfish pregnant for?

Answer

A goldfish does not get pregnant; it lays eggs that need to be fertilized by a male goldfish before they will hatch. The unfertilized eggs build up inside her, making her look fatter than normal. A goldfish with a swollen abdominal area could also be ill.

During mating season, a male goldfish will follow the female goldfish and push her around until she releases thousands of eggs. The male will then spray "milt" on them, and the eggs will hatch in 5 days. After the goldfish eggs are fertilized, remove them from the tank with the adult goldfish because the adult fish will often eat the eggs as they cannot distinguish them from food.
