Yes the “ small white dots” are the tubercles that I was referring to.How old is the fish?
How big is the fish?
Male goldfish that are sexually mature will develop small white dots on the side of the face and on the edge of the pectoral (side) fins in spring when the weather warms up. Females don't get these spots.
Females goldfish that are sexually mature will be fatter than males when the weather warms up. This is due to eggs developing in their abdomen. In my experience, female fish eat more than males but you need a group of them to observe this.
She didn't disappoint me.I swear that goldfish is one of the hardest fish to sex by looking at sexual organs. That little “V” is hard to see. I had a female in my male tank for quite some time. They all got tubercles but her so I started doubting myself. Sure enough, the males started chasing her. Now she resides in the female tank. Lol. A female named Ringo.
Can he see out of the blue one? I see it in horses and dogs.Lol
By the way, this fish actually has one brown and black eye and one bright blue eye, which I find quite interesting. Would you call that some form of heterochromia? This is quickly becoming one of my most interesting fish lol
