What Goldfish do I have and suggestions?

Inherited a goldfish and seemed sad in it's little bowl so got a 20 gallon tank.

Can someone help me identify what type of goldfish he/she is? I figure once I know that it's easier to research water temp and possible tank-mates.

It's a single tailed goldfish so not a fancy. May be a comet? You'll need a bigger tank eventually (or a pond) as they get between 10"-16". They like cooler temperatures so skip the heater.
They'll eat anything that will fit in their mouths so no shrimp or minnows. Snails might be safe.

Eggs!

So it's apparently a she!

No other goldfish so do i just leave the eggs to dissolve/ get eaten?

Yeah I think she'll eat them. Most fish do.
