HI,
I asked earlier about introducing a new fish to my current one.
I still need advice and fairly quickly.
My goldfish was given back tonight and is residing in a small bowl.
I filled up the bigger bowl with water tonight for a temp. home.
To get to the point what should I do with introducing my fish to another?

All new fish should be always be  quarantined in a different tank for a minimum of 2 weeks in order to make sure it 's not infected with harmful pathogens that could harm your current fish. This is one of the ways diseases are transmitted from one fish to another, so you want to make sure the new fish is absolutely healthy before you introduce it to the one you currently have.

you can also treat the water the new one is in with antibacterials and such before adding it. when you do shift the fish to a new tank, make sure you use Stress Coat because that reduces the amount of slime your goldfish will lose form the move.
also-make sure you monitor the water in the new fish's  tank. if a buildup of ammonia, nitrates or nitrite happens, your fish could go to the ground rather than its new tank.
