I would consider some rosy barbs instead of goldfish - they are a cheerful orange, or orange and black, and rather like goldfish at a glance; also temperate fish so they won't need a heater in a centrally heated house unless it gets very cold at night; they are egg scatterers so you won't end up overrun with surviving fry unless you actively set up conditions for breeding, and they are so much less delicate and prone to health problems than fancy goldfish. You could start with a ground of 6 mixed sex providing you have the space - how big is your tank?
