    Hello all.
    Today I moved my overgrown o_O common goldfish to its new pond and discovered what looks like eggs; but with my knowledge it could be anything.

    They were everywhere, :), all over the decorations, in the filter and on the bottom of the bare bottom tank. So many it's hard to believe.
    Please assist to confirm safe or do I need to nuke the system? :lol:
    Thanks

    Defnitly look like fish eggs but doesn't look like they were fertelized. They normaly turn an amber color when fertelized.

    Thanks Pierre
    At least now i know 'Goldie' is a 'she' :)
    It is the first time this has happened or that I've observed the eggs. She is a 'rescued fish' and was alone in the tank and I've had her for a little over 6 months. She doubled here size in that period, I guess after her improved conditions made it favorable.
    Whats the basics relating to Common Goldfish with regard to maturity? How often will she lay and how many eggs? Are there measures I should take when this occurs as that's an extra load of bio-mass in the water? Therefore do I need to do extra cleaning / water changes etc. Does she need a mate/companion?
    Any advice will be helpful.
    Thanks in advance
    Regards
