Aqueons a good brand. I'm sure it does its job. People recommend prime bc it detoxifies ammonia and nitrite. And its really concentrated. 2 drops per gallon

If you contact Petsmart right away they may take the goldies back. IDK what their return policy is, but with any FS it's best to ask them about it asap.
If you can avoid it, why get stuck with 10 goldfish you don't like, that will need 110g tank.
I'm not a fan of goldies either, they're to dirty for me. Plus there are so many
bright beautiful tropical fish, that goldies seem a little boring, IMO. I mean no insult to those that are fans. It's all personal preferance and I prefer tropicals to cold water fish.

Anyway, if it were me, I'd call Petsmart first thing in the morning about returning the goldies.
Also given how dirty goldies are, and the fact that you have 10 of them, you should be doing 90% PWC every day or 50% PWC every 12 hours. Every 12 will be less stressful on the fish.

Good Luck with your new tank, getting it cycled and getting rid of 10 goldfish.

Either way is fine, but just in case you can't find anyone to take 10 of them off your hands, you should still call Petsmart to find out if you even can take them back. As my Grandson, who's 10, keeps saying "Better safe than sorry Grandma".

If I'm not being to personal, why on earth would your roommate just go out and buy 10 fish for, your tank? Didn't they ask you what your plans were?
I would have been furious if anyone had done that to me. One fish as a gift is one thing, but 10 Goldfish is more than filling the entire tank. I don't mean to sound harsh about it, but OMG.

Well the night before i asked him if he was gonna get some fish for it, its in the living room so its a centralized tank for the whole house plus he threw down on it as well. I asked dude to get some fish then i read on here about cycling, when i woke up the next morning dude was at work and there were 10 goldfish in the tank. He just made the same mistakes i did, listening to the Petsmart people, they said isnt very much that we couldve got 10 more for that tank. lol wtf i never had time to teach him about cycling

Wtf. They obviously don't know what theyre talking about. Or goldfishs waste output or max size. I mean the fish have to have room to swim.
