How long do breeding stars remain once they appear? Is it forever or do they disappear and reappear each year?

Is it possible for a male to only getting breeding stars on his front fins and not on his face?

Thanks!

When my goldfish developed breeding stars, they usually lasted for a few weeks. When my tank temp dropped one of my fishes stars disappeared until the temp rose. Currently one of my other fish has had them for over a month now. I'm not sure whether or not its possible to only get it on the front fins only but I think it should be because if they can only get it on their face then why not the other way around? :)

That's good to know! I think that might be what my Bubble has, I thought it was a tiny bit of fungus that wouldn't go away which has really been worrying me. But then last night saw a picture on here of breeding stars on the fins, I always thought before they only appeared on the face. I learn something new from this site every time I look.

Thanks for your fast replies!
