I realize they're not tropical fish, but I figure someone here probably knows anyway.

Can I keep a school of white cloud minnows with my ryukin goldfish?

Thanks.

Their water temp preferences are a pretty good match. However, once the goldfish is big it could eat the WCMMs. They will eat anything they can. That's not to deter you, but just a heads up. I would just make sure to get a large school.

I've seen people keep goldfish with WCMM as they have similar temp preferences and the water chemistry overlaps some. Just make sure they are in a large enough tank: WCMM because they are active and goldfish because they get large and need groups. However, I'm pretty sure your ryukin will eat your WCMM when he grows larger. Goldfish are notorious for that.
