    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.

    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

    Dang it! My thunder got stolen again !

    Dang @Demeter I didn't notice the reflections and Tetras.
    Edit: Sorry for double posting mods!

    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.
