Ive been wrong
« on: October 14, 2012, 12:42:27 PM »

Recently ive been noticing my black moor Bubble's has been chasing my fantail Squeak alot. I thought it was maybe just bullying around feeding time and ive been keeping an eye on it. Today when watching them swimming ive noticed white spots along Bubble's pectoral fin. So Bubble's is a boy, i thought he was a girl. I then had a look at Squeaks pectoral fins and there are no spots. But i had a look at her bottom Cheesy and i think i can see her wen sticking out. Looks like ive had breeding behaviour on my hands Shocked

Just to let you know it's a vent not a wen  Wink(Wen is head growth on a fancy goldfish) but if it is protruding then yes she's a girl Cheesy

Boys will chase boys if no female is available. But a sticky-out vent is an indication that a fish is female. If they spawn they will eat the eggs, so if you want babies remove the adults after spawning.

Squeak has a sticky out vent so she is a girl Cheesy. Bubble hasn't been chasing Squeak since ive noticed his spots. I also noticed spots on his gills too. Ill keep an eye out if i see any eggs or babies, it'll be a surprise if i find any Smiley
