I have no clue about what kind of gold fish I would like, but it had to be a long living one. can they live with angels and rainbows? whats the highest "comfortable" temp for them?

Less than 70 is good for them. You can get away with 75.

I agree with Fish Addict, no higher than 75oF on permanent bases, but 70 is preferred. Generally, the higher the temp the shorter the lifespan.

It's really not a good idea to keep Goldfish with Angels and Rainbows.They're tropical fish with different requirements.
As for the temps,I actually keep mine on 75-76 degrees.I use to have it colder,but I found that turning it up a few degrees not only helped with the fish that were prone to having swim bladder problems,it also made the fish a lot more active. Smile
