I have a 20 gallon 25x13x18in tank with a tropical community. I have been thinking of swapping over to Fancy Goldfish, can anyone suggest any good reading on the best way to do this? Also would I be able to keep my Melini and Metae Corries in with the Goldfish?

In that tank you're better off sticking with tropicals. Goldfish, even fancy goldfish, get quite large; you'd only be able to keep a single fancy in that tank, and you'd have to upgrade him within the year. And it's not a good idea to mix goldfish and tropicals, so the cories would be out.
On the whole, I think you'd be happier sticking with tropicals.

I agree with LittleMousling, all gold fish reach a considerable size and a 20g is by far not a suitable long term home for them.
