You do realise that with the goldfish you already have, you are going to require a very large tank to house these fish for the rest of their lives?
My three shubunkin are stunted by previous poor care and they are still big or bigger than my hand. They have outgrown their 46 gallon tank and are getting moved into a 100 gallon tank in mid November.
There's no point in rescuing a fish if it is simply out of the frying pan and into the fire.
I don't mean to sound harsh as it is commendable that you care, but I hate seeing goldfish cramped into small tanks with promises of future upgrades that never eventuate. I regret that I kept my three shubunkin in such a small tank for this long.
