I think the decor around the tank is deceptive. I think it could be a ten gallon. As for the half full of yellow water thing, this is someone who has decided that they are tired of fish and won't even take the time to top it off because dealing with the water is too much of a pain. That's the look my ten gallon had when I rescued it a year ago.

What temperature do you have inside your house? While guppies are tropical fish, they do ok in slightly lower temps than many other tropicals - if your house stays at or above 18*C (64.4*F), guppies can do just fine. If your house is normally a little warmer (20*C/68*F), neon tetras or celestial pearl danios (aka galaxy rasboras) do great at that temperature. If your house is colder though, I think the mountain minnows are your best bet... Check out the long fin, high fin and white varieties.
I agree with this - that tank looks bigger than a 10gal - it looks more like a 20-30gal.

I ALWAYS get the measurements.
The easiest solution is to have them measure it and then you will know. Tell them you want to make sure it will fit in the space you have or something but get the measurements.

Once you get the measurements post here.
and if you don't want to buy a heater, then you have to get the fish that can handle cold water-like the cloud minnows. if you don't like them, then buy a heater and stock with tropical fish.
putting tropical fish in a cold tank=disease and disaster. you'll get ich in this tank faster than your other tank.
actually turns out it wasn't ick

She only told have me 20x12

You got 2 out of 3 from her
Depending on the hight, it could be a 10, 15, or 20 gallon tank
If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

I asked for them but she said I'm asking to many questions.
i now now it's atleast 10.
I'll try to pick it up tomorrow
regardless of tank size, you are pretty much stuck to some small cold water loaches, or the white cloud minnows.
no goldfish deserves a tank that size.
