More surface movement=more oxygenated water

What size tank and what filtration/pumps do you have?

Plants, which goldfish will most likely eat. Airstones, better yet a bubble screen across the entire back wall will help with surface agitation. It sounds like you have a sponge filter, but if you also have an HOB ,lowering the water level will help to increase surface agitation as well.

What’s an HOB? And I do have a sponge filter! How did you know???
A bubble wall would be so nice! I’ll look for one of those, I wonder if I’d find one that’s the exact same size of my tank?

HOB stands for hang on back. Walmart sells bubble screens. You can cut them to fit the whole length of your tank. I made 1, 4 foot long to fit my old 75 gallon.
Your original post stated the bubbles coming out of the filter, that can really only be a sponge filter.

Here's a picture of what the bubble screen I got at Walmart looks like.
