I was able to see my female was a female when she was just an inch long. The trick is to watch for a long time.

Honestly goldfish aren't that hard to sex once you know what you are looking for. The breeding stars or turbecules are easiest to find for me. You can see them on fish as small as a few inches. This site has great pictures of the vents, pectoral fins, and breeding stars of male and female goldfish.

After seeing that link I went to look at my goldies and my calico has clear ball things coming out of its er, vent. o_o I assume eggs? Gah, I thought I'd be cool with them eating the eggs but we'll seeee.

The oranda looks female also but I can't tell on the comet :< No stars anymore so I guess that's good?

They all seem more interested in digging through gravel than fry-making.
