Breeding Stars?

Recommended Posts

hiya~

I was wondering is it possible for a male goldfish to have breeding stars on their chins? I have noticed a few little breeding stars on his pectorial fin and some that look like they are on his chin too as it is not ick these are bright shiny lil speckles none of my other goldfish have these speckles! has anyone ever seen these before ? also he is swimming normal eating normal and he is not rubbing any rocks or nothing abby norm

It would be unusual for those spots to be breeding stars but perhaps they are some sort of natural markings?

I think it actually maybe as they are almost the same color of his head and wen color but they just are really speckle shiny like but i know on his pectorial fins he does have the breeding stars but dont have them on his gills yet wonders how long its takes for those the show could it be possible that he is preparing to getting ready to spawn with a female in my tank as i know that female goldfish do release 2 sets of pheromones preovulatory and postovulatory and male goldie can discriminate between the 2 so could be hmmmm wonders

I have noticed that the breeding stars on the pectoral fins are more or less permanent but those on the gills come and go. Once you see stars on the gills you know he is ready to go. :)
