Welcome to the forum, Chancehall.

Male goldfish should develop tubercles(pimples in appearance) on the onset of spawning season. Females will appear rounder.

It is dependent mostly on the environmental changes and food supply. Conditioning them with live foods will often help trigger spawning.

I have not seen anything on goldfish spawning in a fish tank though. Everything I see on them breeding is in ponds. I would also be concerned that if the goldfish decide to they will eat any and all small fry and eggs that you might get trying to breed anything in a tank with them.

It is pretty normal for the female to hide in something when close to dropping babies, especially if there are other larger fish in the tank.
