The goldfish doesn't belong in a heated tank. They need oxygen rich cooler water.
Also having so few black skirts, they may nip on the goldfish's fins, they can be one of the nastier tetras.
That being said I have kept some in community tanks, but raised them from when they were tiny.

New Edition to 8.6:)

We've recently had an outbreak green dust algae and took possession of a bristlenose plecostomus so it could eat the algae.
