All answers are from my point of view only ah... so i cannot comfirm.

1.) Should be able to. i commed this two species before so should not have any problem.
2.) depends on your goldfish size . i keep about 5 palm size ryukin in 422 last time.
3.) i com GFs with cory last time , but i prefer them alone.
4.)should be can bah, urs is OHF or got filter tank below ?
5.)my goldfish put clear water, so you on light can see nice nice . but if you put black water, the water dark dark, on light also cannot see .
6.) i feed my goldfish with tetra bits to enhance colour and feed FBW .

hope this helps . im still a noobie, hope those pros out there can correct me if im wrong

Hi bro, i'm also learning each day on gf. let me try answering yr question from my novice knowledge.

1: rc mix with ryukin should not be a bro??
It is always not recommended to mix different type of gf but to me, ryukin and ranchu, they should be ok living together.
2: 422 tank can keep how many gf???
It's also recommended to provide each fish with about 30-50ml of water of space. the important thing is to keep the water in gd condition and there are many of us who will try to stock up the tank to the max.. For yr case, 6-8 gfs at about 4-6inches shld be alrite for it to be groomed properly.
3: what fishes can mix with gf?? see already very bored only gf
I dun think it will be a gd idea to mix gfs with any other fishes. its better to keep it as it is.
4: right now having 13gf inside tt tank... size biggest oni 4inches izit ok?
I think its abit crowded for 13 gf to be in the same tank.. It shld be ok if u have a gd filteration. Just gotta check on the water parameters.
5: does gf need black water to make them look nicer with lights on??
For gfs, i guess they will not need black water. Green water are recommended instead and sunlight to improve on the colours.
6: what is the best diet to pump them? ( as i love to see them grow into bigge sizes )
i myself is feeding my gfs with fbw and sinking pellets.. will also feed them vegetables or peas at least once a week

1: rc mix with ryukin should not be a bro??
I think it is actually not recommended as ryukin tends to swim faster then ranchu and when feeding time,ranchu may not be able to eat much.Correct me if i am wrong.

1: rc mix with ryukin should not be a bro??
If u feed ur fishes well it should be a problem....But there is chances of u have a ranchu wif a eye or 2 eyes missing!!Causes-Ryukin!!!

2: 422 tank can keep how many gf???
In 422 u can keep up to 9 or slightly more fishes depending on ur fish size...

3: what fishes can mix with gf?? see already very bored only gf
If u r keeping good fishes best is not miss wif other fish but if u r keeping gf for personal viewing any non agressive and not too small size fish u can mix

4: right now having 13gf inside tt tank... size biggest oni 4inches izit ok?
It seem ok for now...

5: does gf need black water to make them look nicer with lights on??
gf dun need black water....Light or no light is your personal preference..But wif light you fish colour will be stronger and it will not be so pale.

6: what is the best diet to pump them? ( as i love to see them grow)
Feed them wif koi growth food....

There shouldnt be any prob but still mus monitor cos sometimes ryukin siao will bite the rc
2: 422 tank can keep how many gf???
if u got good filtration can keep abt 5-6 will be good...abt 3-4inches
3: what fishes can mix with gf?? see already very bored only gf
Hmm...if u are talking abt rc and ryukin, it is best kept alone ... keep with too boisterous fish, the gf sure kena jialat...if kept with neons, neons tio eaten
4: right now having 13gf inside tt tank... size biggest oni 4inches izit ok?
I think the pang sai will cloud ur water fast.
5: does gf need black water to make them look nicer with lights on??
Perhaps u can change ur wallpaper to black oyama is better
6: what is the best diet to pump them? ( as i love to see them grow into bigge sizes )
Actualli to pump them, any food will do. I feed mine hikari spirulina and tetrabits till they have pot belly the rule is to feed more times daily...2-3 pellets per fish 3-4 times daily. prefer to feed them pellet and at times give them treat of FBW

thanks for bro taking ur time to read up tis post =)
