They both look like females to me, but its a bit difficult when they're itty bitty.

The moor certainly is a female.

 They are still pretty teeny, but they've grown quite a bit since I brought them home. :) I watched a million videos on sexing goldfish and I still wasn't quite sure on whether my moor was male or female but I was leaning towards female because awhile ago I thought I had witnessed some "Chasing" between the two goldies. Thank you for the confirmation though! Now I can officially refer to Chunkers as her. :thumbup2:

Chasing occurs when they're young and playful so who knows. :rofl

The vent sticking out from the side view is clear on her, and her fins are more rounded. As for the little calico, I can't see very clearly. :hide:

They are pretty playful buggers. :rolleyes: The picture of Butterball (Am I a bad person for giving both my goldfish names referring to them being fatties?? :rofl3 ) wasn't very clear at all so I can see it being hard to sex him/her. Butterball wasn't quite as willing to let me roll him/her over in my hand as Chunkers. xD

So a females vent sticks out and has more rounded fins than a male's fins are? Still trying to learn the difference of the sexes for myself in my goldfish :rolleyes:

This photo is from Jennie of Solid Gold.

Showcases the female fish body, also note the rounded pectoral fins and how thin they are. :)

An example on a darker female fish from Rain Garden.

Much different than the typical female fins, ending in more of a point.

This fish is also from Rain Garden, differently shaped fins, also note the breeding stars on the thick part of the fins which females also lack.

And the difference in vents
