Question Carnival Goldfish?

I know this has nothing to do with bettas and i dont know if anyone here knows about goldfish but today I won a goldfish. I already have 2 tanks ( a betta tank and a neon tetra tank) and my parents will kill me if we have another one. I want my litte angle ( thats her name) to have a happy life so can I keep her in a 2.5 gallon with an air stone? Also, would it be possible if I could put her with the tetras or is that a bad Idea? Thanks in advance

Sounds like the best thing to do is get rid of the fish before you become any more attached to it. No, it cannot be kept in anything near as small as the tanks you have. Not for long at least. While it is small now, they get massive, ultimately requiring a fish pond. Assuming that you provide it the care that it needs. It does not sound like you are in a position to provide that care, so again the best thing to do is to give it up.

It will eat your tetras the second it's large enough. Possibly a little before. It will be large enough to eat them in about 6 months or so. Again, assuming proper care.

Goldfish cannot be kept in that small of a tank, so you need to buy a much larger tank if you want to keep it. Also, your goldfish will eat the tetras so I would not put them in there.
