have read alot of other threads and info on the internet about filters and im confused!!!!i have a very small tank and just wanted a couple of goldfish just to start with but have no clue what filter or kind of filter to buy please help!!!!
Welcome to Fishlore flabzqblock
Goldfish should be in larger tanks with very good filter systems.
If you have a small tank you need to look for another type of fish.
As Jaysee said a Betta is a good place to start as long as your tank is
2.5 gals or bigger.
