Your goldfish will definitely gobble up any fry. A gourami may also eat them. You really shouldn't keep goldfish in with tropicals- they prefer cooler water, and also release too much ammonia to be in with the more sensitive tropicals. I would consider separating them from your other fish intp another tank or returning them to the pet store and getting other tropical fish to take their place if you have room.
