 I  am  not  an  expert  in  Goldfish  keeping  but  i  think  your  2  feet  tank  is  way  too  crowded,  Bala  Sad  See  if  you  can  get  a  bigger  tank  or  try  and  cut  down  on  the  fish  load  Thumb Up  
 Rgds

 Hi  Bala
 You  should  have  lot  more  options  when  you  get  your  4  footer  but,  for  now  i  thinbk  your  tank  is  over  stocked  Smile  If  i  were  you  i  would  stick  to  good  quality  pellet/flake  food  for  Goldfish  and  i  don't  think  its  absolutely  necessary  to  feed  your  Goldfish  live  food  Very Happy  
 Rgds

 Think  twice  before  adding  sucker  fish,  orandas  are  slow  movers  and  sucker  fish  is  known  to  feed  on  the  slimy  coat  of  gold  fish..

 Hi
 Welcome  to  IAH.
 Your  tank  is  about  15  gallons.
 You  have  five  goldfish  and  two  plecos(Iassume  that  is  what  you  mean  by  suckerfish).
 Goldfish  need  about  10  gallons  at  full  size  &  about  6-7  gallons  at  fish  your  size,  so  your  tank  should  be  6  X  5=  30gallons  and  15  gallons  for  plecos.  At  your  fish  load  you  would  need  a  4  X  1.5  X  1.5  ft  tank.
 You  need  to  
      (1)  Decrease  your  fishload.  They  are  too  many  fish  for  a  new  tank.
      (2)  A  new  tank  needs  to  be  cycled  or  else  ammonia  will  start  building  up.
      (3)  All  these  fish  are  very  heavy  bioload  fish,  only  a  U/G  will  not  be  enough,  go  in  for  a  power  filter  or  canister  filter.  If  you  go  in  for  power  filter,  remember  to  aim  the  nozzle  in  such   a  way  that  force  of  water  is  dispersed.
   (4)  Keep  a  eye  on  plecos,  they  are  heavy  eater  but  feed  from  bottom  only,  and  in  a  goldfish  tank  they  hardly  get  anything  to  eat.  This  makes  them  a  very  hungry  pleco,  and  they  start  sucking  slime  from  bodies  of  goldfish.  Feed  them  some  sliced  parboiled  vegetables  like  cucumber,  grouds  etc  and  sinking  foods.
 (5)  In  the  mean  while  increase  your  water  change  schedule,  as  your  tank  is  small  and  bioload  is  heavy.
