I bit if a relief They will be fine in the 10g for now but will need a bigger tank in a few months. They aren't the fastest of growers.
I suggest getting the API master test kit. It's the best for the money. It's cheaper online (amazon) about $20. Make sure you get a liquid test kit not strips. They are cheaper now but the liquid lasts longer and is a lot more accurate. The strips can read 0 but really have high ammonia and nitrite.

I may not have said this earlier but I saw the tester kit ( not API, but nutrafin, still liquid) at my lfs for 40 bucks but you could buy the testers for each chemical separately so I did just that and got nitrite, I learned enough about strips when checking ph in chem to know they're not very great
So yeah hopefully everything's going to be fine for now, and I'll definitely do some more research as I go on

Well your almost all sorted!
All you need is the test kit, new home for the Goldies and some time to do a water change or two each day. read the articles I posted above and they will explain the cycling process.
