I have been doing the maintenance and feedings for by godson;s 2.5 gallon tank, Just has one gold fish, so really was not all that challenging. I decided to get 20 gallon tank. At first went with plastic plant but have now switched live plants and and dealing with amnonia spikes,
Hello and welcome. The tank the goldfish is in is way too small for a goldfish. Depending on what type, goldfish should live a very long life,grow to 10+", and need at least a 29 gallon to be even somewhat comfortable. They are also very social, so he should have one friend in that tank.
I do not understand what you mean by "dealing with ammonia spikes". Is your new tank cycled, and what do you have in it?
