How to breed a fancy goldfish
 
I have a medium 10 gallon tank with 4 fancy nice goldfish. I have had all of them for about 5 years and they have turned out very beautiful goldfish. One of them has such a beautiful long tail and I would love to breed this fish with one of the others. I was hoping that maybe someone could help me learn how to breed goldfish so that I could sell a few to a local pet store that agreed to take most of them if healthy and bred corectly, and it would be a joy personally to breed my goldfish.

You definatley need a bigger tank than a 10, and you need an extra tank that is at least 20G to raise the fry in.

It would actually cost more to breed them than they are worth. The common goldfish you see in the lfs's are usually farm raised where there is profit in numbers.
