Ahh I see. Could you take a pic of the tank? I'm stil going to stick with it going through another cycle. Goldfish have very large bioloads and it may be small now but you eventually will need a much larger tank for it

Yeah your going through a cycle and it looks like you have green water. The moor and goldfish are actually too much bioload for that filter anyway. I'd upgrade your filter

Yeah I'd do 25% for the next couple days to help the cycle run its course

That is just over 12 gallon tank.

The Goldfish needs a MUCH bigger tank, right away!!! It is a BIG fish!

Here is a thread which can help you SEE the situation in a different light!

Why fancy goldfish require big tanks- visual perspective

As mentioned before, you threw out all the BB which was helping to keep the tank clear and helping process the fish waste.

It should require 75% water changes maybe, even 2x per day to keep that water clean.

You need to get a test kit to measure all your Ammonia, Nitrites, and Nitrates, this is a serious situation for the health of your fish.

PLEASE get the fish into a new tank or rehome, the suggested minimum size for a Goldfish is 20G for the first fish and 10G for each additional fish, and a turnover rate for your filter of a minimum of 10 x your gallons per hour /50 Gallon tank 500 gallons per hour.

Also can depend on your feeding - food type and quantity.

And how often/much you do pwc.

This may be a small consolation, but you may well have spared your fish by making these mistakes: ammonia build up could well have overwhelmed the filter and caused a die-off without the water ever turning a bit cloudy.
