This looks like a predominantly goldfish tank correct? I noticed you have an albino rainbow shark, I know you don't want to hear this but it's not compatible. They are tropical fish whereas goldfish are not. You need to remove the shark and if your tank is heated it should not be higher than 72 degrees. 68-72 is optimal

What you have determined as "fine" and what is properly ideal are two different things. I was providing advice for the sake of your fish, if you choose to ignore it that's up to you but I'm 100% positive every seasoned member on here will agree with me about your stock.

Don't just disregard the advice given to you because you don't like it, you clearly don't have the experience that others do given your mix match tank. Waiting for a fish to die before doing anything is obviously too late anybody can see that.
People here don't care about you or your feelings just what's best for your fish.
Listen to them and your fish will be all the better for it.

End of the day cold water fish belong in cold water and tropical fish belong in warm any one who is knowledgable of fish knows this yes goldfish can survive but weather or not its there ideal living conditions is a different story and most people will tell u that
