Do you test your water parameters?

Yes they are good but I have no test strips so I'm only guessing by the aquariums behavior yesterday the water was foaming and right now it's slightly cloudy

I d reccomend buying a liquid test kit so you know the amount of ammonia, nitrite & nitrate that is in your tank. Weekly 50% water changes are a good way to keep things healthy. How often you clean your filter & the amount of food fed are also things to consider.

Is this the 40g listed in your profile with 4, 5" goldfish ? How long has the tank been running ? What filtration do you have ? What's your WC schedule ? What's your feeding schedule ?
