Breeding Age

Determining the age of goldfish can be difficult. A lot of it depends on the environment they were hatched and raised in as fry, how much room they had, how they were fed, etc. And another big part depends on their particular genetics -- some fish are just meant to be big, and will be noticeably larger than others the same age. There's really no set "size" you can go by to determine your goldies' ages. Some three-inch fish might be two years old or older; others that same size could be, say, six months to a year. Anything goes, really.

I had an oranda years ago who started releasing eggs when she was only two inches in length, so I don't think there's a set size for goldies to be able to breed either.
