I currently have a calico goldfish, and I've had her for over a year. the reason why i know its a girl cuz of the fact she is pretty chubby around the middle. I have a few questions to ask. I am considering getting another calico goldfish. but because she has been on her own for quite some time, how long do I need to keep them seperated in two different tanks before I put them together? And if they do happen to mate, and i put eggs in another aquarium, how long can I reunite the fish babies with the parents or do I ever?

Are you sure this is an actual breed of goldfish or a common superficial classification of fish coloration?
