Hi invertaman,
One thing about whiskey barrels is that they sometimes leach out whiskey for a while so you should check on that (not sure how but it could be fun Wink )
That aside, Koi grow to be too large for a half barrel and probably so to goldfish, particularily long term. A neat idea though would be to have a small school of White cloud mountain minnows. Small, colourful and a unique pond fish. They would look great swimming amongst the plants.
Just a though,
Good luck.

Hi invertaman,
Mosquito fish sound good too, but check around as some places may have regulations re. stocking them. There is some concern about accidental release into the wild. (Perhaps someone else has more knowledge they could share?).
Guppies are tropical and won't do well with the cooler weather or the dips between nite and day temps. They may survive the hot summers in the deep south but you would have to have a plan for the winter months.
Good luck.
