I had a lot of goldfish. It became a sort of hobby for me. I even got to the point of breeding and selling them. One problem with goldfish is that they poop a lot, which causes a lot of ammonia in their water. If you buy a fish from Walmart or something, they really don't clean the tanks out as often as they should. So, I would test the water in their bag first. Then test the pH of the tank. This would determine some sort of middle ground between the two. It's easy to stress a fish out when you first move them in, which isn't good. But, what's worse is that if the pH is toxic, you can kill them right off the bat. So, since it's a simple task, you can test the pH while your fish is getting acclimated to the water temperature.
