Dying fish

Whenever I get fish they die quickly. Like they would just float there, if I were to move the tank, [big or small], or not, they would swim around really fast, it's scary. I hate seeing this happen to the fish. I don't know what to do. I use spring water. I'm pretty sure it's room temperature water, not too hot or cold. I had a Betta and it did that. And these 2 fish I got from a fair are doing it. A goldfish and a smaller black & orange colored fish.
They are in separate glass containers.
It can't be the size of the tank because the Betta I had clearly had enough space.

I was wondering if there is a name for it, &/or if I can stop it.

So, they float still, then swim around really fast. Then days later they die. I'd like to know why and maybe, how I could stop it.
Reply please, thanks.
