Your fish are not fine. We have been trying to show you and tell you what is wrong. You have a ticking time bomb waiting to go off. Being in that small of a tank with that much waste in the water is really stressing your fish out. Stress kills fish because it allows disease to attack their weakened immune system. By keeping them in a tiny bowl of water you are directly causing your fish's decline.
Let me try to put it this way. Your goldfish are babies
, just like puppies. You wouldn't put 5 great dane (scooby doo) puppies into a closet and expect them to live a happy, healthy life. This is what you have done to your goldfish. I understand you can't afford anything larger right now. So if you love and care for your fish you will return them to the store. There are other fish that can fit in your size tanks. Bettas being a great choice.
We are honestly just trying to help you and your fish. We understand that you want to keep them, but in this case keeping them is rather selfish. Just get betta for your tanks and let goldfish be a goal to work towards when you are older.
