Hi my name is Martin steele I am new to aquascaping but not fishkeeping.I used to keep a reef tank some years ago.Recently I set up a 60L planted aquarium with 2 goldfish fantails they aren't as coulerful as Marines but they make up for that with there anticks they really are characters.

This morning I got up and noticed the male (I estimate 12 months old) was chasing the female all over the tank and she was laying some eggs. The question I want to answer is should he be producing visible sperm or is he firing blanks nothing was visible other then her eggs Wich I have isolated a few and will watch them.

Any answers will be appreciated.
