"Thank you very much for the informative pages on common and comet goldfish. I bought half-dozen "feeder comets" this past summer to put in a child's wading pool (with pots of emergent aquatic plants) to prevent mosquito larvae. When the cool of autumn arrived, I caught two to put in a 10-gallon aquarium in the house since my poor Plecostoma (Peter) had just passed away :-[. Both are the same color and size, but based on their tails I thought perhaps one might be male ("Bob") and one female ("Fanny"). Even though both were purchased as comets, I now think Bob is a common goldfish and Fanny is a true comet. Nevertheless, since they are both the same species and subspecies, I presume that they'll have no trouble breeding IF (50-50 odds) they DO turn out to be male and female. It would be helpful if there were a closeup photo of the head of a breeding male to illustrate the little whitish thing-a-ma-bobs that would be present. Otherwise, the information provided was very helpful. Thanks again!"
