New to AA and Fish

So one day I got home from work and I have a tank with 2 fish in it. A black moor and a comet. I am thinking they are both young because they are smaller. I instantly became attached and now they are my fish even though they were bought for my children. What worries me is that they are only in a 3.5G tank. I feel they need a bigger one. I can't wait to get more advice and learn how to take care of these little fish "Stormy and Paws"

The moor yes the comet you'll need something much larger. They can reach up to over a foot easily and need about a 75 minimum
