how do i know if my fish is a boy or a girl?
he/she is a goldfish
im hopeing for some advie
It is very difficult to sex a goldfish until they are going to breed or spawn or whatever. xD
When male goldfish are ready to breed they get breeding stars on their gills/cheeks and on their front fins. They look a bit like white pimples. My male goldfish "Big boy" has breeding stars at the moment, if you like i could post a picture. But you can just google search images of male goldfish with breeding stars or whatever they are called. Female goldfish during breeding season or when they are going to breed will seem round, because their ovaries would be full of eggs.
Otherwise, it's really hard to sex a goldfish.
I hope i have helped.
Bubbles is correct- its pretty difficult to sex goldfish. They have to be mature, of breeding age, & well-conditioned to expend energy on reproduction. Males are the easier sex to id. They develop breeding tuberucles (stars) on their gill plates & pectoral fins. Females will appear rounder & slightly lopsided when viewed from above. Females also have narrower pectoral fins when compared to males. A further look can be done on their vents (rearend)-males are concave & females are convex (protrude). Hope this helps!
Thanks this is really helpful! I have 3 fish. We dont no what kind tho. And my yellow fish has gottin bigger ever since we got it. But none of the males have stars.
Please anwser me!
you prob should ask that in the green box in the top right corner.
Can you post pics of your fish? This will help us id them!
What's a pimple? And how can i see the eggs?
Amelia, what type of fish do you have? How many? What size tank? Its impossible to help you when we don't know anything in respect to your circumstances.
Btw, you can NOT 'see' eggs inside of a fish.
Thx helped me a lot I just don't know what kind of fish I have

If your goldfish is big enough the female will have a bumped hole by their tail fins.
