Today, one of the goldfishes stuck itself to the thermostat and damaged itself. By the time I noticed, the damage was done.

Can anybody help and guide please, how do I help it. Since the other ones are chasing it, so I have kept it out separately. Please help

Remove white stones, remove other stones remove plastic plant etc.

Use dechlorinated water, put some biological media in your top filter.

Explaining you the nitrogen cycle or biological cycle in simpler words.

Fish generate waste or leftovers
Degrade and gets converted to ammonia
That's the smell you get, fishy smell, that's ammonia
Now once the shit has been converted to ammonia a bacteria cultivates naturally in particular place where there is surface area for it to reproduce and consume the waste. That's where a good biological filter media comes in to play. Where all the goodies goodies bacteria and enjoy the nasty waste stuff of your aquarium. Now these strains of bacteria which consumes ammonia are aerobic meaning the require oxygen to strive and survive. Hence we strategically place the media in a high flow area where those bacterias can enjoy. That place would be the box of your top filter. And this process from degrading waste to bacteria evolution takes sometime. I'll put it below.
Once ammonia is being consumed by those bacterias the biproduct is nitrite which is same lethal to fish as ammonia. Even nitrite consuming bacterias are aerobic. Hence ammonia and nitrite consuming bacterias are aerobic bacterias.
From nitrite it gets converted to nitrates. Less lethal to fish.
One should always strive keeping below 10 ppm for fw.
Nitrate bacterias are anaerobic meaning they require low oxygen or no oxygen zones. For freshwater mostly people do some water changes for nitrates.

Establishing nitrogen cycle in an aquarium
Requires one to put less fish initially such as couple of mollies or danios like that or may be five for this discussed aquarium size. And leave it for about a month or so. Majority of hobbyist don't get a test kit. India is very price conscious. Hence by the end of 45 days, assume that the cycle may have established.

Rest all is logical

Also, no need of a heater. Goldfish are cold-water fish. Assuming you stay in India.
No need of rocksalt, that's bullshit to use.
