    8 or 9 gallons is much to small for even one shubunkin. They can grow to more than 1 foot in size. they really should have a pond to live in. I can't really read your post because it is poorly spelled, but have you cycled your tank? If not, I suggest you read this and this

    No more fish for that tank and you should be aware that a 9g tank is too small for even a single angel fish or a single shubunkin. Period.

    If you continue to put those fish in that tank you will continue to lose them, You eithre need to make different stocking choices or find a much larger tank.

    BTW, Angel fish are tropical fish and require warm water. GF are cold water fish and do not, I would recommend you research further stock purchases be fore getting them to avoid more losses.

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    + 1 to 850R that tank is way to small for those fish.
