When baby goldfish (also known as goldfish fry) hatch, they’re not actually gold! Instead, they’re usually olive-colored or brown.

After Hatching
Baby goldfish are tiny when they first hatch – they’ll probably look like tiny dark specs in the water.

At first, their bellies are see-through, but as their digestive systems and organs develop, they begin to look more solid.

After A Week
At one week old, baby goldfish are olive-green. By this point, they’ll have started to look like actual fish – their bodies will be fatter, and they won’t just look like a head with a tail attached!

After Two Weeks
By this point, your goldfish should be looking a little less brown, although they won’t have their full gold coloring yet. You should be able to spot them a lot easier, now!

After A Month
By this point, the goldfish should be a lot bigger, and will start to look more like…well, goldfish! They should be a shimmery pink or salmon color, and will become more orange the older they get.

Hope that helps!

Goldfish lays eggs which then grow to form goldfish. Baby Goldfish or eggs are tiny creatures.
