It's a 60L tank and has a lid with a 15W strip bulb and the waters temp sits at 18 degrees Celsius

Thats normal. I just have been looking at a lot of tanks listed in liters because I am looking at nicer aquascaping tanks

Honestly, I am at a loss for fish quite that low. Most fish I deal with start about 21 C.

Anyone good with small tank cold water fish?

I second white cloud mountain minnows. They can handle that cold temp and actually like it better. Nothing else crosses my find immediately, but I know there are probably some other suitable species. Goldfish of any kind are too big for this tank so don't do that
