Another possible rescue

So, my brother still has Way to many goldfish in his tank. I would like to take another one but first I have to get my brother to let me. Another thing is I don't know which one to choose. There's 7 in the tank. Here's a list
1. Small sizes one like gatsby only white with orange spot.
2. Two white ones (. They look nearly pink)
3. Large orange and white one.
4. Small mostly orange but with white tail
5. White with orange back strip (and ripped/bitten tail)
6. Two Medium orange and white

Here's a link to a video. Help me choose one guys!!!!

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.

I will be getting a bigger tank.. Trust me I have read up on goldfish care and I plan to make happy little guys. Honestly when they get too big I'm going to either get a pond made in the backyard or give them away.
