For 2 goldfish your looking at least 40g with heavy filtration and lot's of waterchanges. Goldfish are messy fish.

Crate aquarium

If its absolutely not possible to put any goldfish in a set up like that what cold water species could I put in it besides minnows of any sort? I find that minnows are too delicate for a beginner such as myself. Not just that but at my LFS they are in terrible condition.

Definitely not koi! Koi grow to be several feet long and should only be kept in large ponds. I know because I have about 7 or 8 of them.

Koi are one of those fish that just keep growing and growing and growing and growing and growing and growing and growing.... It eventually will stop growing but koi can live 50+ years! If you want koi your going to have to want it for the rest of your life!!! They are just as messy as goldfish IMO. They are giant fish with giant waste and you know what that means! But koi are actually great fish for a beginner as long as you have the space! Beware of predators though... I've lost a whole entire pond full of giant koi worth thousands of dollars! Start out with koi from LFS and if you get addicted to these awesome fish you could even buy some show quality fish online.

Dang changing oil won't pay for that but I sure can build so I guess I'll have to wait to get to a house where I'll know I'll be at for a really long time
