Sorry I had to get some sleep as you can tell from my last post. If you get the same filter make sure you transfer over your filter media that you hopefully kept wet in tank water. If you decide to go with another brand, cut it off the frame if that is what it has and stuff it in to the new one(s). That's why I like Aquaclear, it is versitile and has a wide range of options as far as filter media. You can not get too much filtration. Try to go with double. Goldfish from what I have read have extremely big bio loads ( which means they excrete bodily waste alot). If you want to know more just ask. I can go on and on......

I have not been able to put in a new filter because my friend doesn't feel it prudent to get a new one, and his tank! I'm not to happy with what's goin on. I have put 6 different air stones into it, hoping it would help a lil bit. There's also a power head running. I haven't slept at all because I have been worrying. I should've just bought the filter myself, I will tomorrow.

Ya, he told me he had tote full of fish supplies, he had five different filter, two extra hoods for a 20gl tank, extra heaters, extra substrate, extra food, decorations, etc. I guess he planned ahead.

I put this filter because I wanted more filtration in the tank, I'm thinking about adding a second.

Just don't change your filter media every two weeks. Rinse it when it restricts the flow in dechlorinated water, and put it back. Most of the BB lives in there.
