Don't know what type of goldfish you have there, but one thing I can tell you for sure: even if that's a 110 l tank (although I'd say it's much smaller), there's no way you can keep more that ONE goldfish there.

The fish in your video don't look happy at all due to overstocking and the fact that you use cold water when doing the water changes (as per another thread), doesn't help them either.

Ive never kept goldfish so if im wrong here please tell me. From what I see in your video the fish look realy good, no sign of any over stocking aggression like fin, tail or scale damage, the water looks clear and fish not showing any sign of poor water quilty. They look fine to me if maybe a little over fed.

Stocking goldfish is not the same as stocking cichlids - the more the better. Goldfish will get stunned and stop thriving if kept in small tanks or overstocked. From what I read on them, one goldfish will need a minimum 100l (that of course can be a bit flexible if the goldfish is small enough or young) given the size they can reach.

When I said they don't look happy to me (and I'm open to correction as well as I didn't keep goldfish), I was referring to the fact that there's little space for them to swim around and there's a big goldfish on the bottom left side of the tank that seems motionless.

There is quite a mix of breeds in the tank....including one (or at least one) oranda.

The fish do look quite healthy, I don't see any health issues that would concern me immediately.
