Hello, I changed the water half and half and I had them in a glass container to let them slowly ajust to the water temp. The container tipped over to soon. Will they be okay? Should I have 2 plants or just 1?

As long as the water was okay the fish should be fine, I would leave the 2 plants for shade. Even if the fish have a problem there is not much you can do know, just let it play out.

Okay, they seem alot happier than before. The water has been treated. They are coming out more. Will my koi eat more than the goldfish? I find the koi is growing faster than the little guys.

It may take days for fish to fully adjust to temperature changes. The old "floating the bag for 15 minutes" really accomplishes very little in acclimating the fish to a different temperature.

The fish are happier because of the water change.
Water quality is the main issue for your container pond.
