Goldfish..bottom dwellers?
 
Are their ANY bottom dwellers that could live peacefully with goldfish? More specifically -- a 20gallon with 1 or 2 goldfish.
I've read online that corys can go with goldfish, but I don't know how well to trust it.
The temps gonna be kept around 75-80 as thats as low as it will go during the summer, I know its a little warm, but goldfish were OK last summer.
Any ideas? Thanks!

I had a weather loach many moons ago also and I think they're a great fish. Thing is though - he got huge! He must have been about 8" or maybe even bigger. Not saying they all grow to this length, TBH I don't know what size they're expected tor each, just a wee warning!
