Any fish that burrows, digs, or otherwise sifts through the substrate would be best served by sand. This includes many catfish, just about all of the loaches, and a lot of digging cichlids.
I'm not really aware of any diurnal, active plecos. Rubber lip plecos stay fairly small and would be good for a 20g or larger tank, but aren't exactly the most active fish in the world.
In my experience the smartest fish are cichlids, especially the larger, more predatory ones, followed by things like puffers and bettas.
thanks XD well out of curiosoty im developing a deep interest in bettas and cichlids what is a big betta that might go (if you dont mind me asking) going in a 10gal? or a 15? xD lol and i wanted to see if i can make it like soo freaking real itd be awesome! and everyone xD will say thats the best betta tank ever ;D lol i wanted something with stripes or atleast multi colors xD and i want it to be like 4inches xD lol and the whole reason i like black skirt tetras cuz they somehow look like archer fish xD if you pay attention to the details xD so i wanted to use plants in the tank so i want to know what plants are compatible? also xD i made fish tank ornaments xD for my tank xD idk if i could use it for the tank xD one looks like a giant deku toad XD the other is a cave of wonders xD lol its to stimulate the fish mind xD because i glazed it in diff colors XD iam having it fired up over the weekend....or actually no xD maybe that or a small puffer xD my dad just agreed to a small fw puffer :3
