When Do They Lay Eggs?

How long does it take for a goldfish to lay eggs? And how do you tell if one is a female or not? My one goldfish has tried to spawn many times, but I'm not sure if my other fish is a male or female. I would really like babies!

Has your fish that you alleged to attempt spawning actually exhibit a well rounded body appearance? Females should look round in the stomach when they are ready to spawn and they are the ones who spur the males to mate with them as they release pheromones that drive the males into mating frenzy. Does your other goldfish ever exhibit white tubercles on its front pectoral fins and gill covers?
