Use the pond thing. Is it small enough for indoors. Add the pumps. Do 3 WCs daily if they stay in the 1g Buy at least a 30g with MASSIVE FILTRATION AND AERATION! Don't skimp on those two. Good luck

Edit: oops, I didn't see the last 3 posts >.< anyways, in the 45 g, do the filter aerator thing. But 50g is the best

but will they survive in a one gallon with %100 daily water changes and a heavy duty air pump for at the max two weeks? or should i place them in the larger container i mention above which is four inches deep, 16 inches long and 12 inches wide? they are only going to be kept like this for two weeks until i can afford their new aquarium. i feel bad keeping them like this but otherwise they will die.... please help! lol

Keep them in the biggest container, and yes add the pumps. They should survive, but do 2-3 100% changes daily. Ammonia is crazy! lol

no its not small enough for indoors but black moors do bad in dark ponds they cant see very well... below is a picture of the only other aquarium ill have available for these guys besides the one gallon, the one below is four inches deep, 16 inches long and 12 inches wide?



so should i keep them in this with no plants or decoration for two weeks over the one gallon? im thinking they would have more surface area...

Maybe, but I would go with whichever is bigger. You'll have the pumps anyways...

i dont' think goldfish need surface area as much as our bettas do. o3o i mean, as long as you get them a bigger tank, they should do okay for a little while. ._o just make sure you follow this rule:

20 gallons for one goldfish
10 additional gallons per extra goldfish

Surface area is for oxygen exchange. Bettas need access to air, GF need oxygen in the water itself.

Keep two in the one gallon and two in the other one. Use an aerator in each.
