I am a big believer in big pwcs even in a cycled tank. I would consider doing 50% a day until your tank stablizes to keep your ammonia under control & keep their water as healthy as possible. Keep us posted!

Goldfish are coldwater fish & a heater isnt absolutely necessary unless there are temp issues/fluctuations. Ideally, i would keep them @70 but a little cooler or higher wont hurt as long as its stable.

Goldfish don't have stomachs so smaller more frequent meals are better than one large one. Also the higher the temperature the tank is the more active they are and the more nutrients they will absorb. Also age is a dependency as well. But to keep it simple;

Just do twice daily an only give them what they can finish in two minutes.

I feed a homemade gel food.

I make sure my largest fish gets a mouthful so the smaller ones can get some food. Then I put two blanched spinach leaves on veggies clips. That's the morning.

At night I just give them the gel food. Twice a week I give peas and once a week I give bloodworms.

Get them some quality food to start with (hikari, pro-gold, nls). Because goldfish do not have 'true' stomachs in the sense that we do, its best to give them more frequent, small meals to prevent bloating & constipation issues. An average would 3-4x day. If this is not possible, then atleast 2x day. Feed daily cooked green veggies as well-broccoli is an easy one. Just throw 2 florets in tank in am, remove & replace after 24hrs or sooner if they are devoured. I also feed some fruits (such as seedless watermelon & tangerine segments) as well. Approach feeding their new foods gradually-it may take them a bit to figure the new stuff to eat! Keep us posted on your moors condition!

Yeah should have mentioned that +1. Get them some good sinking pellets. Omega One isn't bad Hikara is better NLS is the best.
