3 goldfish is your max... most people stock 20g for the first goldie and 10g for each additional fish. This gives you room for error (ie one of your goldie gets humongous), plus it takes into account the substrate (which would eat up at least 5g in a 40g breeder). Also, even numbers are bad feng shui... if youre keeping goldie you gotta go all the way :D Personally I think 4 is kind of a wonky number... 3 goldies will be a lot more aesthetically pleasing.

I expect nothing. I fear no one. I am free.
Excuse my bad and rusty english but i did not have your luck to be born or to live in a country where the main language is english.
P.S I am not rude, i just hate stupidity and act accordingly.

You can try large female guppies, bristlenose plecos, rubberlipped plecos, white cloud mountain minnows and dojo loaches. Do not expect your female guppies or even white cloud mountain minnows to last for a long time though. They may eventually be gobbled by your goldfish as the goldfish quickly grow.
No UGF. 10x turnover rate of filtration is the minimum. HOB, canisters and gutter filters are your best options.
Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to
I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
