sorry to see that.
make sure you give the silicon enough time to set properly befor you re fill it.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

1) What are the dimensions of that tank? It doesn't look like a 30G to me, but I can be wrong.
2) You need more surface agitation for goldies
3) I see no heater. You still need one, not for heat, but to keep the temperature steady.
4) How many goldies are you getting? Only 1, maybe 2 or 3 can go in there.

Alright, my bad...the tank wasn't leaking..there was some water stuck behind the background and it finally dropped out from behind the background..thank god!!

I have 9 goldfish going into this 30G tank, there IS enough room, these goldfish are not that big. Also goldfish run off of room temperature water, therefore a heater won't be necessary. I do have a heater tho, But I'm not putting it in as of now.

I have re filled some of the water in the tank to remove the foggy water, it has turned clear again. I have now put my sisters 6 common goldfish into the tank, they were once in a 10 gallon. They are now in the 30 gallon. They look alot happier!!

I'm going to wait another week before I add my orandas and black moor!

Finally got it going I'm happy!

Yes it is 30G, its 30x12 1/2x18 1/2 I believe. I forget, I measured it 2 weeks ago and looked online it is a 30 gallon.

Yes I do actually, At the lake I have one. But when that time happens I'll think of what to do with them

As I said before, you need a heater not for heating, but for a steady temperature. Temperature swings are horrible for fish. Since you have one, why not use it?
