No, as goldfish are coldwater fish and need temps below 75 F. Your tank is tropical fish and they need temps around 78-82 F.

I got 2 goldfish in a freshwater community tank but its coldwater. They're with the mountaimn minnows, tetras and a black moor - all friendly but we introduced the small fish, then the moor and then lastly the goldfish as babies so they're all good friends. My outdoor golfsih on the other hand will eat anything smaller than themselves so keep an eye out...

Usually goldfih need cooler temps and so do the mountain minnows. Goldfish sometimes carry bacteria that tropical fish will be not be immune to and vice versa.

If you're keeping Goldfish with tropical fish, expect to clean more often. They are big waste producers. Do not keep double-tailed goldfish with any fast coldwater or tropical fish. They are slower and will not get as much food. Comets might soon overcrowd. They also might eat fish later when they reach their full size.
