In order to keep your Goldfish healthy, make sure you have a tank with plenty of room for them to move and search for food. There should be low to moderate water movement and a good amount of light. Keep the water itself as stable as possible to avoid stressing your fish; however, Goldfish are hardy and will tolerate change better than other fish.
