Those are most certainly not goldfish. The orange fish look like blood parrots to me. The other fish is an Angelfish, not sure what variety/species

That is a grossly over stocked tank. There's the angel, 2 parrot cichlids, a couple pink white skirt tetras and what looks like 2 pelcos. Hope you take better care of them than the last owner.
Dang Demeter I didn't notice the reflections and Tetras.
Edit: Sorry for double posting mods!

Ok so I have another question..do I quarantine these guys in the original tank for a bit or get them seperated out right away?

if she's had them for a while, prob no need to quarantine.

but if the parameters are good, you could leaved them in there for a few weeks just to be safe.

She has had them 2 years..I will be doing a total tank tear down to bring them to my house so wasn't sure if I had to cycle it or if her old filter will have enough bacteria in it to make it safe.
