Shouldn't have goldfish in with tropicals though...
...goldfish should really only go with other goldfish, although I do have cold-water loaches (Dojo/Weather locach) in with mine...but both species are from the same biotope originally...so it works...
White Cloud Mountain Minnows would also work...until the goldfish got large enough to eat them...55 g Goldfish Tank - 5 Fancies, 2 Dojos
25 g Tropical Tank - Celestial Pearl Danio/Mixed

Keep goldfish with others of like size, I'd keep tetras in a different tank though....75 Gallon South Cichlid: Tiger Oscar and Jack Dempsey
55 Gallon GT Tank: 1 Male GT and 8 Giant Danio
20 Gallon Long: Waiting for eco-complete planted red substrate that has been delayed 2 weeks due to weather.
