if you figure it out let me in on the secret. hell, i'm still trying to figure out what sex they are and have had mine for several months now. i have one i'm hand feeding. it has a swim bladder problem so once a day i feed it peas by hand so that the others don't snag it from her/him. i love my goldfish. how many do you have?

First you need a male and a female. Second they must mature enough to spawn. Third they spawn when the water warms from winter temps.

When they get to spawning mode , you will know the males from the females . The males will get little white bumps ( pimple like ) on their gill plates .
Drop your tank temp for a month or so , then raise the temp about four degrees every couple days . Nature will take its course.
When you see spawning action , drop a piece of " toole" , ( netting to make Bridal Veils ) in the tank. Goldie eggs float and are very sticky. once you have eggs , move it to a separate tank , warm it up a bit , and wait.
