List of all fish for 20 gallon.

Hey guys,
I want a list of all possible fish that can go in a 20 gallon, I want a list from each person that posts. Will study the fish for water levels and all the chemical things. Please post :D

Rather than start a list of all the possible fish that could live comfortably in 20 gallons, it would make more sense to provide a list of fish based on your water parameters. It is crucial that you select fish based on appropriate water chemistry.

Here is a list of fresh water fish:

It is, of course, incomplete but I have found it to be educational and fairly comprehensive.

I see it the other way, if you have to work with the parameters you have that limits your range of fish but if you select your fish you can then work the parameters to your selection (obviously before you pick it up).

No, it really is best to not mess too much with your water parameters. Most fish can adjust, but once you start down that road it becomes a juggling act - if you drop the ball, then things get out of whack and fish die. You would not be setting yourself up for success. Perhaps later when you have more experience (and aren't demanding Lists of fish from people) you can try it, but for now you are better off stocking fish that are more in line with your water chemistry.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

Dude, experience isn't summarised by how many fish you know that can live in a tank size so I am pretty sure that when I get all of my aquarium resources for free and know heaps about chemistry, juggling water parameters wont be much of a problem.

I would submit that it is. Not directly, but certainly ones knowledge of a wide range of fish and their care requirements speaks to a certain level of experience in the hobby - whether they've actually kept the fish or just researched them.

I know a vast range of fish and alot about them but it is just the fact I don't know what tank range. What I really was hoping was that a convict cichlid would be allowed in a 20 gallon, I mean I really want one but was worried that it wouldn't fit. There seems to be split decisions on the matter, but I am willing to try.

A female certainly can. I would want a 29 for a male.

... If you wanted to know if a convict could live in a 20, why did you ask for a list of all fish that could live in a 20?

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
