Are these breeding stars ?

Recommended Posts

This isn't really breeding as such :P

I have never known if my 3 fish are make or female . But patchy would chase Specky around a bit so I guessed he was male and Specky female and blacky I just don't know ! Today I noticed breeding stars on patchys gills I think and just wanted to check if they are breeding stars ? He has silver , white gill plates so it's kinda hard to see . This is a video because he is too fast to take any clear pictures ! Thanks

Unfortunately, I don't know much about when they spawn, but a lot have been breeding lately.

It's hard to see and gosh is he fast but yes, I think that I see a thickening on the top of the front fins. If we go by Fang and Tithra, fish spawn at Christmas, but I think they are capable any time of year. Our fish had very many breeding stars in the summer and basically none now.

Gold fish tend to spawn in spring in ponds , but since they are in warm tanks inside they can breed any time

I think I can see a few of the spots on his gill plate there, looks like breeding stars to me.
