    lol! Funny comment in answers, sorry...

    But they won't get very big and they won't live very long. Feeder goldfish are young common goldfish, which can grow 12-18 inches long.

    With three of them in a tank that small they will either poison themselves from ammonia buildup, or their growth will be so severly stunted, the stress will be to much, and will kill them.

    Either way, you should keep even a single goldfish in a 10 gallon tank.

    A single goldfish needs 20 gallons, though commons really need bigger tanks than that! They really need ponds! Or one to a 40+ gallon tank.

    I'm not ignorant, thank you very much.

    A 10g tank is too small for three feeder goldfish. They'll only live to be a few months old, they probably won't grow in that time because their growth will be stunted.
