Yawning Goldfish


Do Goldfish ever open their mouths like a yawn unless they are eating? Well even when they eat, I guess they don't open up that wide?

I know they open up a bit to gulp water, but are there any other reasons other than a problem?

They do in sometimes to clear their gills or just stretch their jaw, it's not unusual to see them yawn on occasion. It's only if they're doing it repeatedly or showing other symptoms that you should suspect something else going on
