It can be slightly difficult to tell the difference between a male and female Goldfish. One of the main differences is that during breeding season, males will develop white 'pimples' along the rays of the pectoral fins and also near the gill area. If your Goldfish has these, it's definitely a male. Also, the bellies of females are larger than males, especially if kept with a male Goldfish.
