    well craig i think all the help you will need you will get in your other post and right now i dont think you need to wory to much about what fish you get since you will have to cycle your tank first and that will take long enough for you too do research

    I think there are a few types of loach from China or something that can live in cold water, and also there are White Cloud Mountain Minnows. Just be careful about keeping small fish with Goldies, or they might end up as lunch :p

    hillstream loaches are coldwater, as are dojo loaches (but IMO hillstreams look more awesome ;D ) Hillstreams look like little frisbees when they have their fins spread out 8)

    Yeah--Hillstream Loaches--that's what I was thinking of. They have them at my lfs...I wish I could get some!
