They have plenty of room at the moment as there only about 3/4 of an inch long atm but according to the site i looked up they grow to over 10" in length

Im about to do my third water change since this happened and im about almost got the water crystal clear. Ill say one thing there very lively.

Oh yeah I mean they're good for right now til you rehome them. What kind of goldfish are they exactly? Fancy goldfish (fantails, orandas) or common goldfish or koi?

Yea i do, my goal is eventually salt water, but i wanna play with freshwater a bit to get my sciences down. How are Koi outside ponds? I wouldnt mind having one or two for the tank once i get rid of these goldfish. I know Koi grow very large, but my goal is also to get a small Koi pond started this winter to be ready for next summer. Yea there a more prettier goldfish then im used to seeing but its still 10 fish that almost all look the same.

Koi get like 1-2 feet. And idk how they do in a tank. They have a different temperature range than tropical fish though. Goldfish are "cold water"
Idk about koi tho since they are kept in ponds

My tank hovers around 80 degrees, is that too hot for goldfish? They seem very happy.

Yea me too, they seem very happy in there. I just walked downstairs to check the tank and feed them. They sure do love food. Alll they do is just hunt for it all day long.
