Is it a boy or girl?

Is there any way I can tell if I have males or females in my tank? I have 3 gorgeous Moors. They are playful and I love them. They are about 2-3 inches long.

Hardly. They're just babies still. There's generally no way to tell unless you're experienced with goldfish breeding or the fish start showing breeding behavior. And you can be pretty sure they won't if they're kept in a bowl Undecided

Males would develop little white, rough dots on their gills and pectoral fins (the "front fins") and the girls would simply grow rounder as they fill with eggs Smiley
