    That doesn't really change your sitution too much I am afriad

    Might be best to take them all back to the store and start over with fish that are better suited for your 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 will have a 50 gallon tank and a 20 gallon long tomorrow. So would that be sufficent for the following fish for a few months till I get a 75 gallon or 120 gallon?

    4 Common Goldfish
    4 Black Moors
    1 Fantail
    1 Calico Fantail
    1 Trinidad Pleco
    1 Shubunkin

    The only one over an inch to an inch in a half is the shubunkin which is like 2 inches and the pleco which is between 1 in a half and two. The rest are no bigger then an inch or so. About the size of the thumb at max

    It simply wont work.

    you'll prevent their growth in any tank less than a few hundred gallons.
    it's called stunting their growth. their body will try to stay small because they know they'll grow and not fit in any tank you have listed. but their organs will grow no matter what.

    so you'll just slowly kill every single fish on your list

    please do yourself a favor and return them. it'll save you so much stress.

    None of those fish are suitable for a 20 gallon so that will be of no help. You simply can not keep fish that grow to one foot in small tanks. You also can not keep warm water fish with cold water fish (Bala Sharks and Goldfish). And you can not keep several fish that will soon grow to a foot in a 50 gallon.

    You may as well take those fish back, get this tank cycled and then stock it properly or you'll have a lot of problems later. You have made a big mistake here but fix the mistake, not try to work around it.
