The goldfish don't look thin at all, unless they are Fantails, which one of them looks a bit like. They will eventually become more "meaty" but you don't have to worry. Don't EVER overfeed because goldfish will literally eat themselves to death they are so piggy. You don't seem to be doing anything wrong, and it's nice you're concerned for the "easiest care" animal on the market...goldfish.
They shouldn't eat the snails, unless they don't react quickly enough. They usually learn to pull their little eye stalks back into their shells as soon as a goldfish makes a beeline towards the tasty snail. Good job so far :D
The temp for goldfish can range from 55-80 which should be somewhere on the lower half. You shouldn't really worry about it though. And your water changes are fine, as long as you're not freaking the fish out and making them bang into everything. Cute fishies, by the way. The first fish's mustache is just too cute :)
7 bettas, 2 goldfish, 50+ (accidental) snails, 2 parakeets, 1 dog, 2 cats
Rest in peace Butch, greatest dog ever, Omelette the Veiltail, and Chipita the Veiltail
