Use a service like photobucket or flikr and just link us to the uploaded picture. That's how I do it.

Also, a 10 gallon (37.8 liter) is too small for goldfish
Welcome to the forum!!!

You probably need to re home them all because your tank isn't big enough for them to go without stunting them. Bit I can't really say till we figure out what it is for sure

That looks like a CAE (Chinese algae eater)

Also, why is there no filter on your tank? Why is the water only half way up?

my 38ltr tank has a filter, this is only a TEMP tank I had to put them into tonight as the bigger one was chasing and sucking onto the goldfish.

strange, I was told I could have 3 gold fish in this tank - new to this accept the knowledge of fish shops

Ya that's too small. Most pet shops either don't know what they're talking about or knowingly deceive people to sell more fish. It's hard to find an honest LFS.

You should get rid of all your fish and start over with something more size-appropriate.

Maybe some Chili Rasboras

Or some Mosquito Fish


And some shrimp


Tiny animals for a small tank.
