Welcome to the site!

If you have a very small tank you should get a betta. There are a few different filter options for small tanks. WHat kind of tank is it?

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.

Welcome to Fishlore

Excellent advice above. Any tank smaller than 10gal (US), is really only suitable for a single Betta or a couple of other more specialized fish.

If the tank is 10gal (US) or less, then an air driven sponge filter would probably offer you ample biological filtration. They only cost a few dollars & are availble at any LFS or Petstore.

Hello Flabz and Welcome to Fish Lore!

I have moved your thread to the Filters/Filtration section of the forum to help you to receive more responses. Too, it will help others in their search should they have the same issues.

Thanks! I hope you enjoy the site.
