ZX300SI ,

Could you maybe post some specs on the aquarium for any of us here to see where to start. As for what you tell us so far , there's plenty of space , filtration which is good to hear.How often do you do water changes as goldfish are known to be very messy fish ? The white pimple you noticed on the goldfish's mouth is maybe a bacterial fungus of some kind or another name for this is " cottonmouth" .This could spread to other parts of the fish and should be treated very quickly.Good luck ! Smile
