    2 weeks ago I saw my male goldfish chasing the female goldfish.Is it a mating behaviour. Also I noticed that they have some pimples on their gills.Is it normal?

    Usually, male goldfish will develop white pimples around their gills around breeding time, but a picture would confirm...

    TexasDomer and Five 97 , I am out of station . So I can't post a picture. But definetly I will post a picture when I return home.

    After research I saw that the pimples are same with the other mature goldfish.
    Maybe they will give some eggs.

    @TexasDomer and @Five 97 any ideas from the pictures ?
    Looks to me like tubercles.
