Just from a quick glance the nitrite needs managing.  Keep it at zero or as close to zero as possible with water changes, you may need to do one or two complete changes per day. Your test kit will help.

 

As Mandy said, we need some more information to best help you, so please fill out the form completely :)

Thats an internal filter. Those filters don't work well at all for goldfish. I do believe this is your big issue in this tank. Those filters can build up bad bacteria really fast and it can cause fin rot. I would highly suggest a Aqua filter 70 or two 50's :)
