There are many actually ... many Tetras and Barbs for example have a lower bio load than goldfish. I'd wager that 15 neon tetras in your tank couldn't put out as much waste as two goldfish...LOL.
I'd hold off on Algae eaters for now until you've finished your black out and give the 4hr on 4hr off a week or two ... IMO
. Snails (some?) I've heard / read actually have large bio-loads for their size as well .... shrimp however have practically zero bioload.
Edit ... sorry forgot to mention that with a 15gal a few tetras or guppies may be the best bet.
Barbs require a lot of swimming space.
