I went over to my sister's house yesterday and she has 2 calico fantails in a 2.5 gallon! I know that is not enough and I've convinced my sister to let my take them soon. However, I noticed one of the goldfish has one white eye while the other is normal. I was thinking ammonia poisoning, but I'm not sure. Here are some photos, sorry for crappy quality.

It's pop eye, one of a number of infections in the eye. It likely needs to be treated with antibiotics.

Where would I get these?

A petstore, but which antibiotic depends on what the bacteria is. Unfortunately I can't help you with that as I've never dealt with a case of pop eye before. One of the other members should chime in with more help for you. :)

You can try just keeping the fish in propper conditions first to see if that helps, but as far as treatment with meds im not sure whats goldie safe. Triple sulfa, terramycyn and epsom salt are all used with bettas.

Kay kay. ^^ I've done some research and found a good medication I can order online. I'll get the ten gallon take set up as soon I can for them. I'm gonna have double filtration since they are normally messy fish keep the what clean. Just got a master test kit too.
