I think Dojo Loaches would go well with them. They are peaceful & like the same temperature as goldfish.

Will there be any problem that the goldfish would be too slow to get the food?

I would say the three ryukin goldfish will max out a 60g by themselves. They do attain 8-10 inches, some even larger. Our goldfish profile was written by an expert with these fish, Lupin:
Carassius auratus auratus

The dojo loach mentioned needs a group of 3 minimum, and they get large too, so not suitable from that standpoint. I'm not sure they are a good match with goldfish anyway, but here the sizes prohibit combining them regardless.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
