A 10g is too short for ANY goldfish and a molly can get up to 6 inches long and needs a 30g tank minimum.

Goldfish like temps of 65f to 72f. Mollies need 75f+

Any warmer and it may. Goldfish don't do well in warm water at all. My concern is that a 10g is just too small for a goldie period. The tank just isn't tall enough and then when you add gravel it's even shorter. You'd do much better in a 15g or 20g dimension wise. My personal recommendation for goldfish, for this reason, is 15g for the first one and 10g each additional one.
