I would go to planetcatfish.com. The list specifics on all sorts of bottom feeders. Goldfish like their temp in the low 70's max so try and see what fits that range. A small loach would not be a good idea as goldfish can be very mean to new comers in a tank. Whatever you find try and make sure to provide lots of cover on the bottom (driftwood, caves, etc...).

According to this:

Kuhli loaches could definately fit in with the goldfish temperature-wise. As far as goldfish aggression, I have no clue.
