Welcome to AA!

We can help you with the ID of those fish if you would like.

The goldfish(if that is what they are) will need a larger tank.

We are all here to help, drop on by the freshwater forums and we will give you a hand with the ID of those fish and anything else you need to know.

Hi, welcome to the site. The other issue with the gold fish is that their requirements are very much different then the tropical fish you have listed.

I guess they may not be goldies as they can from the same tank , which also had an Oscar , my friend couldn't keep them in the 55 gal because the two Oscars he already had would eat them , so he keep the three Oscars and gifted the reast to me with the small tank he used as a temp while setting up the 55 gal.

many people do keep goldfish with tropical fish, it might not be the right way, but it is common

if it was me i would try to sell the goldfish (if that is what they are) and the rainbow back to a Local Fish Store.

then, if you want help picking out appropriate fish to replace them with we can help...
