Hi there, and :welcome

Size is not important when determining whether or not fish are able to breed. It's not a very good marker of age, nor of physical health.

Goldfish must be in perfect health to spawn, and have been "conditioned" to do so (either purposefully or accidentally) since the fall of the previous year.

Generally, the older a female, the more eggs she will produce, making the odds of viable fry higher.

Also, your fish must be in a proper sized tank, as cramped fish aren't happy fish, and unhappy fish don't spawn. Plus they need to be getting a balanced diet in order for them to produce eggs and milt.

Hope this helps! :)
