Hello and welcome to the forum!
You could try trapdoor snails or ramshorns - they love algae and will be fine with larger goldfish. Failing that you could try a couple of nerite snails - Tiger or Ruby - as these really munch algae well. Your temperature should not drop below 18 degrees for nerites though, and anything above 20 (to 26 Degrees) is much better for them.
