      i have a lid on my tru vu and my evaporation is very minimal. i just use my 55 gallon for some tetras and others small fish. any way great advice and that's all you can do sometimes is try to help

Two of the 4 goldfish in that tank are very small, and I'll be able to move the other two goldfish into another 40 gallon tank soon. WTH does it mean for a tank to be "filled properly"? I fill up the tank to the top when I do a water change, but some of the water evaporates. I don't have a lid on my koi pond, and I've never had a fish jump out.
      I noticed a few people saying that it is overstocked. I am just wondering, is 10gallon per fancy goldfish no longer the rule of thumb?

      It doesn't hurts to improve filtration but honestly since all the fish looks small, a 40 gallon with clean water parameters should be fine, I imagine....

      No. You want 20 gallons per fancy goldfish. And you don't want a Koi in there at all. It is not overstocked. It is BADLY overstocked. With the poor filtration and the water level not being where it should be, it's even worse.. And if his parameters were fine, his fish wouldn't have blotchy slime coat issues and the tank wouldn't look that way. That was the point they were making.

      Yup. With a lid you'd be surprised at how little evaporation you get. It would definitely never look anything like this unless you ignored it for a month or more and it was quite warm where the tank was.

      I did a large water change yesterday and cleaned the filter. I'm going to move the two smaller goldfish into another 40 gallon tank soon.

      After the water change, I added a second AquaClear filter and the fish are looking better. I just need to finish my 75 gallon tank stand, and I can move the fish that are in my other 40 gallon into the 75, and then I will move two of the goldfish into the 40.
