20 Gal sand stocking retrogradations?

So I got a free 30 gal tank, and transfered some fish over to it that needed more room. Now I am left with a 20 gal tank and not sure what to do with it. I am looking for something new.

So far across 6 tanks I have Convicts, Yellow Lab, Oscar, YoYo loaches, tiger barbs, cherry barbs, rosey barbs, angel fish, plekos, serpae tetras, rainbow shark, and betas.

I was thinking about maybe an Axolotls, but I really would like a sand bottom as the rest are gravel, and I hear that can be bad for Axolotls because they can ingest the sand while eating. Also they require a lot colder water temp then most the other fish I keep.

I was thinking maybe some kind of sand loaches etc too. So please any interesting suggestions would be great. Nothing that is extremely difficult to keep please. Also accepting plant suggestions too. I have a single plant in a 10 gal, and a couple red wentis in one of my 55s so not too experienced in that area. Thanks!

Ugh, somehow my auto correct changed recommendations to retrogradations? Fail. :(
