We need more info in order to adequately offer suggestions.
1. When was this tank set up by you?
2. Did you add the fish right away or wait, and if so, how long?
3. If recently, did you cycle it before putting the fish in?
4. Do you do regular partial water changes (assuming you've had it for a while)?
5. Has it always been cloudy, or just now?

I agree about needing more information....however....

that many goldfish in such a small tank is way way way too small. Goldfish are known as some of messiest fish around. the bioload produced by one fish in a 10G tank is alot, let alone have 6 of them in there!!!! Goldfish can grow to be quite big....if you can consider a new tank.

just more pieces of information that would help
-type/size filter do you have?
- do you have a LIQUID test kit? a reading of your water paramets would be able to help us out

IMO it is probably the goldfish. They are VERY messy fish that eat a lot, poo a lot, and get way too big for that tank. But as others said more info will help.

Personally I would take the goldfish back to the store and get some White Cloud Minnows.
