welcome to AA! the only thing i'm wondering about though, gold fish are supposed to be cold water, if you put a heater in it gold fish may not like it too much. i know i had a gold fish in a heated tank and he didnt do to well.

Is it possible to do too many water changes and although my tank is 55 gal isn't some water displaced by the gravel and the decorations? What do I measure dosage of anything at if there technically is NOT 55 gal in there??? Should this even be an issue....

I did 50% water changes, but I had a smaller tank. If you have .4 ppm, and you do a 50% pwc, you should have .2ppm, and so on. You can do 2 water changes a day if you need to. Not back to back, but spaced out. And make sure you use dechlorinator if you need to (city water) and keep the new water as close to the same temp as what's in the tank.
Just guess on the 50%. Take out half the water. But if you haven't done a pwc in a while, only do about 15% so you don't shock your fish with a pH swing.
