for every inch of fish add 2 gal of water

read what you said :

dont live anywere near pet co. my goldfish are fine and i looked at 46 goldfish care websites.some of my goldfish are mixed and dont grow over 10 inches and the shopkeeper has saved my fish 8 times so i trust him when he said that they dont grow over 8 inches and he showed me the goldfish size that the goldfish will get. it was 4 inches long and 5 inches wide. also the goldfish tank is six inches long and nine inches wide. the goldfish heve a good 14 inches to swim in. leo is only one inch long and maybe 2 inches wide and one inch tall he is a lion head and i saw a grown one and it fits into my tank. oradano and coral are red caps and wont grow big. star is a oradana and shimmer is a mix of somthing. so thanks anyway i will soon put a photo of the goldfish tank on the aquairm log so you can see them all.

9x14 average full mature size is 6 to 8 inch now 9 inch x 14 inch tank is not even big enough for 1 fish

37 gal bow front (saltwater)
octopus 150 skimmer
external penguin bio wheel 150 packed with cheato
ETH 200 watt inline heater
3 power heads 500gph
in line UV sterilizer

30 gal (brackish)
bio filter
under-gravel 2 power-heads 250gph

30 gal hex (freshwater)
bio filter
under gravel 2 power heads 170gph

Who ever said keeping fish was easy should have there head examined
It's more like a full time job !!!!

IT wont help save fish that are over stocked in a small tiny fish tank it don"t cure toxins from ammonia or even suffocation

I see your gupppy tank is also way over stoked if its also 2gal.

I say give all of the baby guppy and molly to the pet shop and put the gold fish in the 19gal.

How would you feel if you had to live in a porta-poty.

first i would never abandon or give away the babys. they are happy in the baby tank and i promised their mothers before they died that i would keep them and care for tham until they die and join them. as for the mollys my mom loves them and it was her who got them not me i only got the black one. star had just come from the sea when i got her new stock. she only had about thiry seconds to be in the fish shop tank.

All the things your saying are making me think you only want the fish.

PLEAS! If you love the fish at all,do this for them,Not you!

Get a tub or something that you can put them in till you have enough money, to buy a 75gall(If you don't they wont grow much and die young)
