well goldfish are coldwater fish they like temps below 70 and will be very unhappy and get sick if kept with tropicals (that like temps 75 to 80 on average) other than that I believe theyre the same pretty much
Goldies are really neat fish and to me really easier than tropicals. They do need more room and prefer an unheated tank. I think everything else has been covered

You still have to acclimate your new fish to your water and do water tests. Your not getting off that easy fella .
Once they get to know you they are very interactive. I have one(don't remember what kind it is) that goes outside in the summer and inside in the winter and he alway comes to the top when I come near. Begger!!!
