Ok. Your tank wasn't cycled before the fish was added so you need to look up fish in cycling. You can find articles on this website.


24l isn't a big enough tank for a goldfish but you can deal with that later.
Goldfish are extremely messy fish and produce a lot of waste so water changes are going to be your best friend here. If you have an airstone/pump that will help as well.
