Looking for Advice on Stocking

I have a 55 gal aquarium which will be an aquaponic set up, that I have started to cycle. Currently I have 7 mystery snails in to help the cycling along. I will also have some live plants (hornwart and java fern) in the tank as well as lots of hiding places. I'm planning on several fancy goldfish. However, I would love to have 3 emerald cory cats also. Is this possible? The goldfish will be small (2 inches) when we get them.

Goldfish prefer cooler waters while emerald cories need tropical temperatures.

Goldfish tend to be a species tank, not much lives well with them!

Go for it dude. Most studies are general percentages and others experience with these fish. Iíve kept plenty of stuff that people wouldnít dream of putting together and Iíve never had problems, but than again you could just consider me lucky? It all depends on the fish and their personalities. Donít let statistics bother you if those are like your dream fish. Just do some extensive research if youíre worried.
