There are several issues with this tank. The Iridescent sharks can and will grow up to 4 feet if kept in the correct environment. They need a huge tank and I would strongly advise you return them as keeping them in a tank this small will stunt their growth, and they will show aggression towards slow moving fish like goldfish.

They are also not compatible with goldfish what so ever. The sharks should only be kept with large, semi-aggressive cichlids and some large catfish, and goldfish are far too small as these fish grow enormous. Return the Iridescent sharks and just have the goldfish.

I concur so much with what was above. ^

The sharks and the goldies aren’t compatible, even if it may seem that way. Consult @Deanasue on how many gold fish you can keep in that tank.

Those fish aren’t compatible. PLEASE get the goldies out before the sharks kill them. They also can’t compete for food with the sharks. One fancy goldfish needs 20 gallons of water with 10 more gallons for each additional one. So 4 goldies need 50 gallons alone with no other fish. Sharks are tropical and goldies are cold water fish. It just won’t work for long. My heart breaks for those sweet goldfish. Please get them out. :)

The sharks also need to be rehomed.

They need tanks of 14,500 litres or 3800 gallons - basically, a swimming pool.

Nice looking tank.
But unfortunately, I'll have to agree with all previous comments.
Iridescent sharks should not be sold at pet stores.

Very nice tank but I do have to agree. You need to get rid of the shark and please please please get a larger tank. Perhaps you might try a new species of fish, one that wouldn't have the complications connected with keeping goldfish and sharks

Im sorry but the first thing I thought was Oh No! I'm new to the Hobby I don't know much about the temperament, size requirements, growth and compatibility of the fish but I immediately thought that the tank was too small.
I can imagine you're feeling a little overwhelmed with all of this feedback but I think you should take it very seriously.
Along with the well-being of your fish I think it's also for your own well-being that you don't have to deal with the consequences the others are talking about.
I really hope you take the advice of the collective.

Don't think we are being harsh, but as you seem new to the hobby take our advice. Make the changes, you are responsible for these little guys wellbeing. Consider that, and then see what needs to be done

but i can not keep them separated , they are very healthy and play with each other.
It may seem this way for now, but they could suddenly turn on the goldies. This tank is far too small for the sharks and you need to get them back to the place you bought them from, or to someone with a tank of 1000 gallons at least.
