I have an small indoor aquaponics system and I’m wondering about the selection of fish I can have?

Question by james: I have an small indoor aquaponics system and I’m wondering about the selection of fish I can have?
The tank is 45 gallons. Because it’s indoor, I’m not looking to do any serious fish farming. I’ll be growing herbs, leafy vegetables, and eventually peppers and tomatoes once the system is well established. My question is what fish work well with the system? I’m guessing filtration isn’t as great compared to using an actual filter, but because this isn’t large scale system, I’m not looking to raise tilapia, catfish, or bass, ect. What fish work well in this system that are standard maintenance and also very fun to have?

I’d I’d aske this question at a mom and pop style pet shop that stocks a lot of different kinds of fish. My guess is goldfish will do fine since you see them in everyone’s back yard fish pools.

BTW: YA has a pets/fish sectoin, you may want to ask this in there.
