Pike ,Walleye(Pickeral),Muskie ,Smallmouth,....
Man what a huge tank that would be!
A lot of those are just varieties of the common goldfish, they are just bred to look different. The fancy kinds that you mentioned are not as tolerant to cold as the common goldfish...

Dunno if you can get them where you live
but fresh water crays (in NZ we call them Koura)
or fresh water crabs are also neat
The fresh water mussels help filter the water, but don't move so . . . are kinda boring
Some tropicals or sub tropicals can be climatized down to be cold water such as:
Or there is always the white cloud minnows
Axoltls are great! nice touch to a cold water aqurium . . . but don't go too well with other fish. LOL they eat anything that moves and fits in their mouth
But don't shun the goldfish ahh, as they come in some pritty cool varities and look neato!Like i have this shubunkin, which is a grayish black on the back half and a ghostly white on the front half.He is awsum, as he has a red spot where his heart is (i think)And has black eyes!I named him Spud then named my username after him.LOL only fish of mine that i've named. LOL hes that special and is a goldfish!
Don't drink water . . . fish poo in it!!!
