What range should the water temperature be & is there a problem with using soft water from a water softener unit to provide for softer water?

katy...You arn't supposed to have a goldfish bowl for any fish. Goldfish need at least aa 20 gallon tank with 10 gallons for every additional fish (at least if not a larger tank). Goldfish are very messy and need lots of space. They need a good filter, a heater, etc. I would advice you to get at least a 20 gallon tank. I used to think you could have fish in fish bowls but that leads to unhappy fish and lives shorted by quite a few years.
