Hi
There's a easy to follow guide to ways of cycling a filter on my website (click the banner in siggie).

With goldfish, they should be given at least 8 gallons each due to the size they can reach, and the fact they are quite a heavy load on the filter.

Not trying to point the finger but get advice before you get the fish next time please :blush:

Please post your technical settings of the aquarium (size, filtration, ..)
How many fishes are going in? (and what kind of goldfishes?)
Are you getting living plants in there?
Additional aeration?

Also learn a bit about water values and that tap water is toxic for fish in general.
