You might want to stick to common goldfish, comet or shubunkins. Fancy ones are more delicate although fantails, being an intermediate, will work just fine.
18 degrees celsius cold? Thats like really warm. Thats one of the reasons I will probably never be able to have a koi pond here in Wisc. during the winter you get quite a few days where the temp says below -18*C or below 0*F. Anything above freezing during winter is a heat wave.
