Help, Pleease?

I Have A Betta Fish, But I Also have 3 Goldfish. All In One 3 Gallon Tank.
Is That Bad?
Are They Going To Fight Eachother?

Are these fancy goldfish or common goldfish? Fancy goldfish can grow to 6-8 inches and one alone should be housed in a 20 gallons minimum. Common goldfish should be housed in 55 gallons minimum. Your tank is pushing beyond the limits. I'd keep the betta and return the goldfish to the lfs.

Besides, goldfish are coldwater species and will not tolerate warm temperature the bettas require. Bettas, at the same time, will become lethargic if the temperature is below 76 degrees Fahrenheit which is required when keeping goldfish.

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.

I managed with 1 small pond goldfish 1 male betta and 2 molly's for about 2 months in a 5 gallon tank but i decided to put the gold fish its own 5 gallon tank to calm it down!
Hope that Helped!

A 3 gallon tank is too small for even one goldfish for any length of time. The goldies require a lot of space to grow and stay healthy. The betta will not likely fight with most other fish that are not bettas. He will have problems, as others have already noted, with any water that is a good temperature for a goldfish. Bettas are not only tropical but like their water about 80F. While 80 may not kill a goldfish outright, it is not good for them.

basically as stated above

they wont fight, they are just going to die.

why? because 3 gallons is only enough space for a betta, and the fish u have all need different requirements
