please halp (desc)

I went to this festival thing with this chick I like today and there was a stand where people were just giving out goldfish. So I got 2 for some ******* reason, and I don't know what the hell to do with them now. I don't have a bowl, or fish food or anything and the water is pretty gross. I took a piece of bread and put some dried up crumbs in there, hoping they would eat it but I don't know if they did. I feel really bad, I don't want to just kill them but I don't have any way to take care of them either. So I need help. Wat do? I can like put them in a plastic bowl, but I live in Las Vegas and tap water here is pure **** . I have bottled water though, is it safe for fish? Also, what can I feed them? And what should I name them?

UPDATE: Sadly, one of the fish has perished. It's just this little guy now, and I am determined to keep him. I've moved him to a plastic bowl and put filtered water in it, I'll work on getting an actual mini aquarium thing and some real food tomorrow. Also, I have named him Fizz. Hopefully he will be with me when I wake up.

Put tiny crowns on their heads, do drugs and than pretend they are your fairy oddparents.

Also: get a aquarium and Fishfood

keep the water moving, and splash it a bit now and then to make sure the water is rich on oxygen... or else the fish will suffocate... i know it sounds weird but it is the truth.

goldfish grow as big as their environment allows so if you do intend on keeping him and get him a tank for himself "5 gallons would be fine but 10 is usually the average for beginner fish caretakers" then he will get pretty damn big. just feed him fish flakes from pet stores or Walmart something like that, if you are keeping him in something without a filter then you need to change his water regularly A) for cleanliness B) so he can breathe.

Make sure to change water regularly, and you'd best visit a petshop that sells fishes. Ask them for help if you want to keep the poor creature, or else you could give it to them and they'll sell it to someone. Anyway ask them, they know all about it an will help you.

It's good to note that those goldfish will get over a foot long and can live up to 10 years or more. If you are really dedicated to keeping him then I would suggest starting out with a 30g tank with a filter and no heater since they are cold water fish.

Oh and one thing more my mother reminded me of right now is that when you have them in a larger container you need to replace the water now and then... and do this instead splashing around to give them oxygen because it will work better. BUT! do not replace all the water at the same time, just like a liter or something every 8 hours or so... depending on how large your new container is. but i recommend a container that has at least 20 liters of water or more... will make things A LOT easier for you.
