Help - Feeder Goldfish grow FAST!

I made a huge mistake when I decided to put 3 small feeder goldfish into my thicklip gourami tank. I thought it would be nice to have "tiny koi" but they grew from 1 inch to 4 inches. There is still plenty of room for them to swim, the water cleanliness is great but the goldfish are beginning to harass the gourami. I have nowhere to put them, I can't afford a new tank, and I can't find anyone who wants them. I don't believe in killing animals and I don't even have room for another tank, any suggestions?

A lfs, or Petco will usually take them. They certainly don't stay tiny very long. Otherwise pond building time.

New to FW fish? First tank in a long time or EVER??? Need some info on keeping fish?
