Hi Mycael.

There is no way to distinguish sexes of goldfish species except males having tubercles at the start of spawning season. That goldfish looks like a comet to me.

Definitely looks like a Comet. I've no idea how to sex them but as Lupin says it's impossible unless they're spawning so just give him/her a unisex name, LOL!
