    watch your ammonia levels, goldfish put out so much ammonia that most fish don't do well with them. If you have to put another fish in there, then you have to, just keep up water changes, watch your levels, and treat your water as needed.

    yes, but if nothing else you really need to invest in an ammonia test kit, then work on getting the nitrate, nitrite, and pH test kits.

    Your Oranda you have in there plus your brothers Goldfish is all you should have in your ten gallon until you get a bigger tank.

    Goldfish don't fall under the inch rules (very few fish actually do).

    Here's a 5" goldfish in a 10 gallon. This is why I said at least 15 - 20 gallons EACH.

    Also, most of those chemicals that are supposed to remove ammonia & nitrIte do much more damage in the long run. You really need to stop using that and get tests for ammonia, nitrIte, and nitrAte (and start saving up for a bigger tank). In the mean time start doing 25% water changes at least once a week.

    And I hate to burst your bubble, but you're probably not going to have too much luck with live plants using the standard lighting for a 10 gallon. It doesn't put out enough light.

    What kind of plants are they? There are a few low light plants that sometimes do okay with standard lighting, but a vast majority of aquatic plants need more.

    i would not put the second gold fish inas other have told you also as with just a standard light make sure you have low light plants so they don't die
