Question Goldfish ---Set Up Questions

I was going to get 2 of those really small feeder goldfish to brighten up my computer desk area......well,
hubby came back home with 2 good sized fish. So much for my plan of a simple bowl set up.
I believe they are comets....about 2.5 inches long.

So, some of my goldfish stuff is with my daughter, but I still have a 5 gallon tank with lid and light.
I have a few questions even after reading through the threads here.

1) Pump/filter: maybe the outside hang on the tank type....AquaClear mini?
2) Can I turn off the pump at night to avoid the noise factor?
3) Do I really need gravel on the bottom.... it's hard to clean.
4) Would snails or an algae eater help with waste in the tank?
Thanks for any help.
Please have pets spayed and neutered,
and wearing a collar with an ID tag.
