    That would depend a lot on the quality of the water and the temperament of your goldfish.  Some goldfish can become territorial and may harass other fish.

    If your aquarium has a filter and the space is adequate, try also adding a little salt to the water, no more than one teaspoon per five gallons.  This is not a cure, but it can sometimes help fish adjust.  Try to get plain salt instead of iodized salt.  Rock salt is even better if you can find it.
