Ive had my goldfish for not even a week and they've all died, idk why, i have everything they need a filter, clean water, a heater, plants. im really confused why they died, is it because they live in a plastic tank?

If the tank is clean, then the non-toxic plastic shouldn't have any effect on the fish. Plastic fishtanks are often used for people starting out with fish such as goldfish, not really suitable for tropical as a majour downside to plastic fish tanks are they dont retain alot of heat, and are often quite small so many of the fish may feel isolated.

Plastic tanks do not really kill goldfishes! Perhaps it is the place where you put the fish tank? Did you put it in a place where there is a lot of sunlight? Having too much sunlight could result it warmer water.

Yes, perhaps there is another cause of death.
 Try to discover it yourself... *_*

From what knowledge i have i don't think they will die just because of the plastic tank, they might be something else you are doing that has caused the death.
