    Honestly, I don't think there are any cold water fish you could safely put in a 6.6gal tank - goldfish get way too big. For a tank that size I would recommend getting a small heater and a betta or maybe some shrimp?
    46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
    5 gal QT
    Remember: Our job is to take care of the water our fish live in

    I have successfully kept cool water fish in unheated 6 gallon tanks. They were L. ommata and now E. fusiforme. I also once kept a single male Nothobranchius guentheri in a unheated 6 gallon for two and half years (about a year and half longer than they live in the wild). It can be done, IMO, but they should be fish that are not very active - no danios, for example, and no goldfish, obviously. And if you are just starting out I would avoid a tank that size except for a betta or some shrimp as andreahp suggests.

    That said, a ten gallon offers you more room for scaping, etc., and thus an even nicer tank.

    I wouldn't advice any schooling fish in a 6 gallon tank. Go with andrea's advice to have shrimps instead.

    Learn to give and take. That's how things should always work.
